Hi, everybody. Can I download updates for ubuntu server 9.04 on one machine with internet connection, save them there and then install them to another computer which is not connected to internet?

Regards.

actually i dont know abt server edition but in desktop edition downloaded package files are saved in
/var/cache/apt/archives
so you can copy them to another comp. then reload synaptic & install the packages.
the packages will be taken from the cache.

Thanks for your reply, vikkikanhaua. But I have a server version on the computer which doesn't have internet connection, so I will not be able to use Synaptic, although I might be wrong. What should I do?
