Cloning packages from dpkg -l

I’m setting up a new machine, and I need to make sure it has all the same packages as one in England being used for a similar project. To that end, I have the results of a dpkg -l call from the machine I want to imitate, but I’ve been having trouble ensuring that this machine gets the right packages installed. I’ve tried the second answer from here: How to list all installed packages?
as it seems to be essentially what I want to do, but it seems that after the
dselect-upgrade finishes and I reboot the kernel is gone, and I end up having to re-install ubuntu again.
Long story short, I’m looking for a way to get all the packages from the list I got from the
dpkg -l call installed on this new machine, preferably without deleting the kernel and forcing me to re-install…
--set-selections requires the package list to be in the format of
--list, I’ve made a new text file that consists of the
--list results in the proper format (eg
abiword install rather than
ii abiword 2.9.2+svn20120213-1 efficient, featureful word processor with collaboration). It does run the
set-selections from this file, so that makes me think that the format is fine.
