Ubuntu – Dependency not satisfiable – Offline deb package install

error handlinginstallationofflinepackage-management

I have a new installation that has no chance of an internet connection.

Since I want to add a few development software packages, I downloaded a few *.deb files. The problem is that for every package I try to install I get the same error:

"Dependency not satisfiable...."

Also downloaded other versions of that software (the deb files) but it didn't work.
I've researched other questions in here and Google and I haven't been able to solve this yet.

  • I know you can install apps on another computer and then copy all the deb packages over to the computer without internet access. the debs are normally found in '/var/cache/apt/archives'
