Download, Update, or Import Packages

When there is a web version of a package that you do not have in the local archive, you use the download action to move the package to the local archive. When you have a local version of a package, but there is a more recent version in the web archive, you use the update action to obtain the more recent version from the web archive. You use the import action to move a package into the local archive that cannot be obtained from the web archive.
