    If you don't want to upgrade to latest release then execute apt-get upgrade command instead of dist-upgrade.

    Let me explain whole process again.

    * Execute this in Terminal :
    cd Desktop
    sudo apt-get clean all
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get -qq --print-uris upgrade | cut -d\' -f 2 > urls.txt 
    * You will have a file urls.txt on Desktop. Copy this file to Windows Machine have fast internet connection using Flash Drive.

    * Open urls.txt file in Windows machine and download every package listed in it. You can use any Download Manager to automate this process.

    * Copy downloaded packages to Flash Drive.

    * Copy packages from Flash Drive to /var/cache/apt/archives folder of Ubuntu.

    * Execute this in Terminal to install those packages :
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
