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:

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:

The OS is a fresh install.

/lib/modules/3.7-trunk-amd64/build is a symbolic link to /usr/src/linux-headers-3.7-trunk-amd64 which is provided by the linux-headers package on your distribution. Just install linux-headers-amd64 in your system and you should be fine.
