So basically our problem is trying to install .deb packages meant for debian-apt with yocto-apt?
I take it we can only install the .deb packages built by bitbake (deploy/deb/*)?
Exactly.

Would it be possible to install the debian-apt on our system (outside of yocto) and then use the debian.org packages?
Nope. Whats the reason of using Yocto anyways if you are then jumping
through all kinds of hoops to just make it behave like a Debian? If you
want a Debian, you should probably be using a Debian :)

Having said that, there are buliding tools for ingesting the debian
repositories and spitting out an image, like Linutronix' ELBE or the
ISAR project. Maybe thats what fits your needs?

Thanks for pointing us towards that package management whitepaper, I am sure it will help us properly setup packet management of our yocto-built .deb packages.
