>From Linux, you can use the dpkg-hurd script to install programs:

cd /gnu
./dpkg-hurd --install /som/package.deb

However, note that postinst scripts will not be run.  So maybe do:

cd /gnu
./dpkg-hurd --unpack /som/package.deb
(boot to the Hurd)
dpkg --configure package

But I guess you want to use apt after all.  Several times there have been
hints here how to use apt to download under Linux, and install under the
Hurd, serveral packages including dependencies.
