Imagine the following situation: you used the online update, but did not
install e.g the Opera patch. The package manager knows about the Opera
patch, because it already downloaded the list of available (synched
with the update repository). What will happen if now the user wants to
install Opera? Will there be a timeout waiting for response from the
sever (thus a delay before installing from the DVD)? Or a quick check
that there is no internet connection? Or an error? Of course, I would
expect what you say: just install from the CD/DVD, and preferably
without waiting for a response from a server that will never come (a
very short checking is fine).
