I think so :

man up2date :

-k, --packagedir
              Specify a colon seperated path of directories to look for
              packages before attempting to download them.

(in case you use he command line option, not the GUI)

By the way, I used to put some updates under /var/spool/up2date some
times ago, and it was working quite good. But your need root access for

Or you can configure up2date and tell him that your repository is under
$HOME/updates (for example) . This works also and you need the root
access only to configure it, not after.

Right click on the up2date icon will show you the Configuration menu.

Hope this helps
