Copy them from /var/cache/apt/archive/ and then put them back there on
the new system.

It is usually a good idea to backup /etc/apt/sources.list as well (I
don't use Automatix, but I have a couple of third party sources that get
me most of the same things).

I would also recommend Kubuntu over the regular Ubuntu.  KDE is a joy to
use, I wish I could say the same about the current Gnome (I was a long
time Gnome user, KDE won me over).

Why didn't you like it?

I know I liked Kubuntu because it was a hybrid of a stable Debian
variant and a recent KDE.  I am a huge fan of Debian.
