Are you aware of this:
apt-offline can fully update and upgrade an APT based distribution
without connecting to the network, all of it transparent to apt 

About the super deb package, seems those would need to be very huge
packages, if indeed all dependencies were included. Adding suggested
and proposed packages would make them even bigger. 

Users with no Internet can install from CD-disks and then use something
like apt-offline to get the needed update packages.
