I need to install Kali Linux updates without Internet access on my laptop.

I think I need to do this because I'm trying to install the wifi driver but I get an error when I try to make:

make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS COMPILTE= -C /lib/modules/3.7-trunk-amd64/build M=/root/Desktop/rtl8723A_WiFi_linux_v4.1.3_6044.20121224 
modules make: *** /lib/modules/3.7-trunk-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop. 
make: *** [modules] Error 2

Trying to install the Realtek rtl8723au wireless driver wifi driver: github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723au (from http://askubuntu.com/questions/318608/…) It's for the Yoga13, I can cd /root/blah/driver, but when I make it just spits out the aforementioned error message, that was the entire error message.

When using "dpkg -l | grep linux-" command, it yields this:

ii firmware-linux-free 3.2 all Binary firmware for various drivers in the Linux kernel ii firmware-linux-nonfree 0.37 all Binary firmware for various drivers in the Linux kernel ii kali-linux-full 1.35 amd64 Penetration testing and security auditing distribution, full system ii kali-linux-sdr 1.35 amd64 Penetration testing and security auditing distribution, SDR tools ii linux-base 3.5 all Linux image base package ii linux-image-3.7-trunk-amd64 3.7.2-0+kali8 amd64 Linux 3.7 for 64-bit PCs ii linux-image-amd64 3.7+46+kali1 amd64 Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package) ii linux-libc-dev:amd64 3.7.2-0+kali8 amd64 Linux support headers for userspace development

The OS is a fresh install.

More context, please. What is the driver? And is the the complete error message? If not, please post the whole thing. –  Faheem Mitha Feb 1 at 12:41

Ok, I suggest you edit your question and merge that in. You just typed make? You usually need kernel headers installed, at least. Can you list what kernel related packages you have installed? –  Faheem Mitha Feb 1 at 16:21
    
I just installed the OS from a live usb, the laptop does not have a wired internet port, and the wireless driver isnt working, so I really haven't touched it at all. –  user58177 Feb 1 at 16:24
    
Ok, check what kernel related packages you have installed. I see Kali is a Debian derivative, so something like dpkg -l | grep linux- should catch the relevant stuff. Toss out obviously irrelevant packages. –  Faheem Mitha Feb 1 at 16:27
