You've probably set up Synaptic to leave downloaded packages in the cache. This makes sense if you have lots of disk space. If you don't, it doesn't.
You can remove the packages from within Synaptic or by running "apt-get clean" in a terminal as root. (If there are any rpms that you feel you may need, back them up first. Normally you don't need old rpms.)
