I want to update the ubuntu server manually and i am installing packages or libraries manually (i.e in offline) in ubuntu server 10.10(32-bit). I had downloaded the files from http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/libs/, while installing these packages it shows error like this
root@dhcppc4:/opt/commonshare1/packages#sudo dpkg --install libc-bin_2.12.1-0ubuntu10.1_i386.deb
dpkg-deb: unexpected end of file in version number in libc-bin_2.12.1-0ubuntu10.1_i386.deb
dpkg: error processing libc-bin_2.12.1-0ubuntu10.1_i386.deb (--install):
subprocess dpkg-deb --control returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:

If you have a server that's functional only in your LAN without a connection to the internet, why would you need to update it? Is the server still providing what he needs to provide? It would be a lot easier to connect to the internet and use apt-get to update. In using the package manager you'll not encounter errors like these which are hard to solve. You'll have to track down and download ANY and ALL dependencies for ALL packages which has a huge risk for human error. What's the reason you need to update and cannot do that using the package manager and an internet connection?
