download all the *.deb of my actual installation, all the sources

Hi

I am looking for a way to download all the *.deb of my actual installation (also all the sources packages), and to reinstall completely fresh with them.

Is that perhaps easily possible?

NB: I continue to use Devuan Jessie and it is the reason: I don't have some CD's or DVD's from that distro (are perhaps some ones available to buy ready for use? But else it it would be possible to get those, the question is simply interesting!) and will burn my packages on a CD!

A simple way to download all installed binary packages could the following command:

$ dpkg-query -f '${Package}=${Version}\n' -W | xargs -n 1 apt-get download

Similarly, to download all source packages you would use the following:

$ dpkg-query -f '${Package}=${Version}\n' -W | xargs -n 1 apt-get source --download-only

Both will populate the working directory.
