Wouldn't this require that on both machines the same Ubuntu release
is installed and that on both machines the same packages and packages'
versions are installed, thus the consequence of this a full-upgrade is
required instead of "-d install gcc binutils"?

IOW on the Internet machine run

  sudo apt update
  sudo apt full-upgrade

or just in case even
  sudo apt -o APT::Keep-Downloaded-Packages=1 full-upgrade

  sudo cp -ai /var/cache/apt/archives/* /path/to/thumbdrive/

and on the other machine

  sudo apt install /path/to/thumbdrive/*
