Disable automatic removal of debs after install
apt (1.2~exp1) experimental; urgency=medium [ Automatic removal of debs after install ] After packages are successfully installed by apt(8), the corresponding .deb package files will be removed from the /var/cache/apt/archives cache directory. This can be changed by setting the apt configuration option "APT::Keep-Downloaded-Packages" to "true". E.g: # echo 'APT::Keep-Downloaded-Packages "true";' \ > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01keep-debs Please note that the behavior of apt-get is unchanged. The downloaded debs will be kept in the cache directory after they are installed.
Disabling this would be nice for users who use
apt to preseed their
persistent APT cache.
