    it most likely had downloaded updated packages the last time it was connected to the net. also, why are you so certain you aren't connected to the net?

    Sorry for the late reply, but I am sure not connested to the internet because the modem is definitely turned off overnight.

    At some point you were connected to the internet, thats the only way to get updates downloaded. If you wish to stop this, go to your software sources>updates and uncheck it. Then you will not receive any updates and will have to manually update.
