Once you have downloaded the latest packages they are most likely not in the bz2 format. If you have slow internet connection and want to prevent a second download you may want to copy the tar balls directly into the archive. For example:

gunzip package.tar.gz
bzip2 package.tar
mkdir -p ./download/repository/package
cp package.tar.bz2 ./download/repository/package
