This should work in theory, but I have two ideas regarding that: Copy the downloaded debs to /var/cache/apt/archives/ instead of installing them with dpkg -i. Thats where apt checks for packages and downloads them to. And probably even better: Check out apt-zip: APT-ZIP is a package to update a non-networked computer using apt and a (removable) media ...

Short answer is No. What you are saying is an Ubuntu running without internet which in itself is pretty bad because you don't get OTA Updates for your version and your bugs will not get removed and neither will repository support be available. This is not recommended for Ubuntu as it will have you running on a flavor that is not supported by the ...

It is not safe to accept the removal of python2.7 because uninstalling python2.7 will also remove a lot of other packages that you need. The safe way to accomplish what you are trying to do in Ubuntu 12.04 is to install the version of MySQL Workbench from the default Ubuntu repositories. In order to do this, you need to repair your package catalog. Fixing ...

You have the right gettext package installed, but your PATH is a bit inconvenient and therefore you use the "wrong" msgfmt. The path /opt/bitnami/common/bin should be after /usr/bin and so on. Place /opt/bitnami/common/bin at the end of your PATH settings.

I had the same problem. I have a System76 laptop where I had installed the Kubuntu desktop. The problem with apt-get is it tries to be a little too magical here.

Brosix is providing versions for amd64 and i386 processors. This means 64bit and 32bit desktops. Phones are using ARM processors. So, at least they should recompile for armhf (and also make sure that the application doesn't depend on X11 display server).

This (the syntax error) is caused by a Python version mismatch, as the syntax has changed between Python 2 and Python 3.

Do you really need the 3 version? 4.8 is the current one on my trusty system. If you have an old executable referring to such an old version, try just adding a link to the 4 version. That might work, unless the old exe is using obsolete functions. Assuming you really need the 3 library, maybe one way is to install the 32 bit versions to avoid conflict ...

Depending on where you got the package you are currently trying to install, you may have the wrong one - your package needs version (>= 2.42.0) (i.e. newer than 2.42), but the available trusty version is currently 2.39.93. You may have accidentally got a package for Utopic or newer (possibly via a installed PPA), as both Utopic and Vivid have version ...
