You can try to use the script dpkg-hurd in the root dir of your GNU partition.
However, it is not perfect, some installation scritps won't be run.

So you are better off by installing the packages from GNU/Hurd.

There are ways to use apt by downloading under GNU/Linux what is needed, and
then booting into the Hurd and finish the install.
