I recently started using KACE and as well as Ubuntu, and trying to deploy .deb file to Ubuntu, but it seems the deployment doesn´´  t go through.
I can find tutorial how to deploy .rpm files or tar.gz with KACE and have followed the instructions, but it seems the same way doesn ´  t work when trying to deploy .deb files. Not sure if I am doing something wrong, but maybe you have anything to suggest, how is the right way to deploy it?

Thank you in advance!

by default it works if you "override default installation" and use dpkg -i PACKAGENAME.
but ... 
... since the dpkg checks for prerequisites and tries to solve them it will fail if a prerequisite is not done.
A better idea would be:
Use scripting and use apt install PACKAGENAME if the .deb is part of the repository. If not you can provide it there as a package too.
