Is there a recommended process for being able to install Ubuntu packages along their transitive dependencies, in an air-gapped IT environment having no direct Internet connectivity?
I can think of two challenges -
Bundling up each package of interest along its recursive set of dependencies, for delivery into the air-gapped environment
Setting up the target Ubuntu servers not to look for packages from the Internet but rather using the bundle from (1), or, setting up an internal download service which the target servers will reach out to instead of the Internet servers normally serving up packages
Your comments much appreciated!
