I read this instructions to install openbravo


Command line installation using PPA Repository

Enable the openbravo-isv PPA Repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openbravo-isv/ppa

Update the package tree and perform the install:

$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install openbravo-3 Note: sudo command will ask for the user password.

but my updates is 1000 gb so I don't want to update my all packages and my dsl is 256 so it will take a lot of time to complete the updates , could I install openbravo without update ?

sudo apt-get update

will only update the index of available packages, it won't actually download any package:

From apt-get manual:


update is used to resynchronize the package index files from their sources. The indexes of available packages are fetched from the location(s) specified in /etc/apt/sources.list.
