What is apt-offline ?

 apt-offline is an Offline APT Package Manager
 .
 apt-offline can fully update and upgrade an APT based distribution without
 connecting to the network, all of it transparent to apt
 .
 apt-offline can be used to generate a signature on a machine (with no
network).
 This signature contains all download information required for the apt
database system. This signature file can be used on another machine
connected 	
to the internet (which need not be a Debian box and can even be running
windows) to download the updates.
 The downloaded data will contain all updates in a format understood by
apt and this data can be used by apt-offline to update the non-networked
machine.
 .
 apt-offline can also fetch bug reports and make them available offline



apt-offline is available at [2] and the latest release can be downloaded
