Bug Description

The currently shipped documentation in Focal Fossa refers to apt-offline for offline package management. We don't ship that any more. Offline package management is pretty much broken as a paradigm with the advent of snap, Flatpak, and AppImage in addition to the traditional Debian packages.

Patch to the documentation text is attached to fix things for now until something better can be written. Research is required in a further follow-up.
