R2023a and later

Follow the instructions from the link below. The page also includes the UI to download the documentation.
Install Documentation on Offline Machines
Please note that if you are using Linux, you should not install the documentation as the root user. Otherwise, documentation will only be accessible to the root user.
If you need to change MATLAB settings to use offline documentation and do not have access to the MATLAB GUI, run the command below in the MATLAB Command Window:

R2022b and older

Documentation is installed during installation and there are no options during installation to exclude it. You may use Preferences in MATLAB to specify to use offline documentation rather than online documentation.

@James the question is about specification and general update workflow, not whereas we need to update right now.
