look in /var/cache/apt/archives for downloaded updates
and for installing program .. do

sudo apt-get install <"program_name" here for example wine>

Thanks and revert if any difficulty

To anser the first part of your question, when updates are applied all the .deb files end up in the following directory /var/cache/apt/archives/

You can't really use this directory to install wine. You can install from the Software Center or from the command line with
sudo apt-get install wine

After you install wine it will end up if the afore mentioned cache directory.
