I have CentOS with no Internet access. I have a docker container based on Ubuntu. I want to install Python inside the Docker container. I downloaded some .deb files for installing Python 2.7. I tried to install them with apt-get. But those commands required Internet access. I used dpkg -i to install the packages. I use
dpkg -i libpython2.7-stdlib_2.7.6_8_amd64.deb. I then followed up with apt-get install -f. I am prompted with a yes/no question about extra packages. I chose Y. I then received an error about not being able to reach some URLs. This isn't surprising because the underlying server cannot get to the Internet. The URLs refer to
python2.7-minimal_2.7.5-5ubuntu3_amd64.deb among others. I specifically have this .deb file. But when I try to install it, I get an error about an unmet dependency python2.7-minimal. I am well aware that this was not installed. I want it installed.
How do I install
python2.7-minimal_2.7.6-amd64.deb in Docker?
I tried to workaround the problem that I don't know how to solve. I obtained Python-2.7.11.tar.xz. It is 12 MB. In the Docker container, tried this:
tar xvf Python-2.7.11.tar.xz
But I get
tar (child): xz: connect exec: No such file or directory
I verified the file exists. In fact, when I type the command "tar xvf Python2.7" I can press tab to complete the full name of the file. Is there a standalone file or other offline method for installing Python?
Ideally I can get assistance for both parts even though only one needs to work.
