      Description

      Puppet Version: 4.10
      Puppet Server Version: 2.8.1
      OS Name/Version: Ubuntu 16.04

      apt-get is able to install packages from locally stored .deb files (apt-get install /path/to/package), resolving dependencies as usual. However, the apt package provider doesn't seem to support this, which enforces the use of the dpkg provider. Unfortunately, this provider doesn't do dependency resolution (since dpkg itself can't do that).

      Desired Behavior:

      Installing from a local package file with the apt provider should just work.

      Actual Behavior:

      apt provider fails when trying to install from a local file.
