I've installed a very large sized package through "sudo apt-get install ...... " on my primary computer but I need to install those packages on my other computers too.
I don't want to re-download the files as they're extremely large.
Also, It's irritating to do "sudo apt-get update " in every machine. It takes time and my bandwidth too !

Is there any way to do this ?

Set up a local repository and sync your systems to that. You're still going to have to download massive quantities to keep it in sync with the master, and, you will be responsible for its upkeep. You're going to need a wide pipe and lots of storage. For fewer than 10 systems, checking only once a week, it's not worth the effort.

You can script the entire update process and run it on a schedule. But there are valid reasons it's not done that way by default.
