Hello All,

So I wanted to know if there is a way to update a virtual copy of Ubuntu using Windows? For instance downloading the files onto Windows and then transferring them to the Virtualbox?

The reason I ask is because I am using a government network and cannot update the virtual box on the network or even connect it to it.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks 8)

It looks like everything runs through apt-get... So you're kind of hosed there.

It's possible to download the files to a local APT repository and then update from that
