I'm installing Ubuntu on a virtual machine. I keep seeing updates that it's "retrieving" this or "retrieving" that. Is it trying to retrieve them from the Internet or just from the installation CD?

When asked what I wanted to install, I selected: LAMP server Mail server OpenSSH server

I hope all these are on the Ubuntu installation CD, because I'm not connected to the Internet during the installation routine

Installing does not require the internet however fetching packages from Ubuntu servers requires an internet connection to install "LAMP" and such. They are not included on the cd.

  • Ouch, so if I was disconnected at the time it was fetching, would it at least give me an error that it couldn't fetch? – drums Jul 25 '10 at 6:31
  • if you "sudo apt-get install apache2" and then when its downloading the package unplug your connection I'm sure you will get an error. – jer.salamon Jul 25 '10 at 14:12
