We have a local mirror of selected packages from which we install

There are many ways but the easiest is to create a setup.hint file

I am not sure what you mean by "empty package" and how do you make it

If I create a setup.hint and copy it to, say, release\base-files\, will
This sounds like fooling the installer. I can't believe that there is

Fooling the installer into believing there is another package to install?
