View Full Version : [ubuntu] unattended package updates hanging in 11.10

Using Ubuntu 11.10

When I use Synaptic to update packages, the process stops and will not proceed unless I clear the popup of changelog notices. This behaviour is echoed when using Update Manager where unless I drag the dialog box to a larger size, I can not see that the process is hanging at a prompt ..something/tmp. When I enlarge the dialog I see that it is hanging. Then if I enter "q" the changelog scrolls and the update proceeds.

My question is how do I avoid or stop the whole review of the changelogs so that the upgrades can revert to the previous behaviour of upgrading without further interaction?
