apt-get -d

Im running Debian sarge, and i have set a cron job which automatically downloads updates with apt-get upgrade -d. The question is simply, how do I go about installing these downloaded packages, (my guess is apt-get install <package name>) and what do I do if the upgrade 'breaks' the installation of the app? Is there a way to 'undo' the install?

thanks in advance,

There isnt any way to undo it AFAIK.

There is no simple way to undo ;)
You may downgrade again but isnt so simple...

You may install the downloaded packages running teh same command without the "-d" parameter ;)
