I have never done any actual manual installation, since I started using ubuntu 2 years ago. I'm trying to install some updates, little by little.

I'm using my blackberry to download and transfer all the updates needed as well as restricted drivers. I tried everything I found on google, like:

sudo apt-get *file location*.*extensions* and all other commands..

I would like to know, how I can install everything without internet. Main reason without internet is my Toshiba C855D-S5303 (Satellite) will crash upon connection with wifi. I have the ubuntu system run off of a USB 3.0 connection, I have tested it beforehand to make sure it stood up to the standard hardware reqs. of speed it needed to run.

And if there is a fix for the wifi crash (downloadable and transferable) that would be more greatly appreciated. Its also a fresh install.

Maybe this answer can help you. –  Radu Rădeanu Oct 12 '13 at 8:39
Didn't help much... I'm still lacking a lot of programs and such to install anything. –  John Santiago Oct 12 '13 at 9:18
@JohnSantiago What do you mean by "crash"? The network applet goes down? All Unity freezes? Or the computer really crashes (a kernel panic/general lock)? Also can you be more specific on what you are trying to achieve (offline install some software/package, fix your network). –  Salem Oct 12 '13 at 9:59
Could you please keep one question per post, also apt-get don't work like that. Please, check the answer that Radu linked and why can't you install anything? What happens when you try to install. Edit your question and copy what happens when you try to install. –  Braiam Oct 12 '13 at 16:30
The entire system would freeze up and crash. –  John Santiago May 10 at 14:51
