I know it's not the "proper" way to do it, but if you just want to get the
job done and figure out a better way later, just copy all the packages to
the root of the USB then mount it as /var/cache/apt/archives and you should
be good to go.

Of course, I am sure someone knows a better way, but sometimes the fastest
way is all that is needed.
