There are a number of caches involved, and I don't know the latest
information about where they are unfortunately.  Some of them got moved
around recently, I think.

The caches are:

   /var/lib/apt/lists/     - Packages and Release files from the repos.
   /var/cache/apt/         - 'compiled' binary representation of above
   /var/cache/apt/archives - downloaded packages
