You would need all files and folders (except 'packages') from eg.
this location (change the architecture and release as you prefer):
If you would like also to install additional packages during the
first install from you local mirror, verify that you also get the
'packages' folder (it is a softlink/symlink, check your mirroring
script how it does work with such things). The content of this
folder could be several GB of size.
