On the original machine (source) type:
dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall > ubuntu-files
Save the output file to a location / disk that will be accessible in the
new (target) machine.
On the new machine, do a minimal install. Once you have booted into the
new machine, do the following:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
dpkg --set-selections < ubuntu-files
where ubuntu-files is the original output file that you saved.
Now your new system's package management subsystem "knows" what you want
installed. Just use dselect to install it all. Type the following:
This will open up a dselect session. Type '/I/' and allow dselect to
install of the the packages listed in your ubuntu-files document. When
it's finished, type '/Q/' and hit the/ ENTER/ key to exit dselect.
You should have an identical package list (or close enough).
