    Impossible to install updates using 2G connection

    Hi,

    I am using my phone as a modem. My phone is capable of 2G only.

    Right now I am using a different distro.

    Problem is its impossible to install updates using the 2G connection.

    It never finishes.

    I got a Lubuntu 18.04 DVD ready if that is needed,

    Any suggestions ? What is the best possible way out in my situation ?

    what do you mean it never finishes? is it too slow?

    you can download updates first using synaptic package manager, then trigger the offline install. or using apt: https://www.maketecheasier.com/updat...et-connection/

    Do you have access to high(er) speed internet? You could do a off line update.

    There are several way to do this, here is one.

    Yes it is too slow.

    Problem is this is the only connection I got and I cant download updates by any means.
