Server 8.04 will not download updates. The alert manager indicates that there are 22 updates but once the manager is started it turns opaque and never gets to the password screen. Is there a problem or did I do something wrong?

Open a terminal and execute:-

sudo apt-get upgrade
to see if you can install the updates that way.

I noticed the same thing, synaptic freezes as well as update whether started from the task bar or from the menu. I will try the suggestion and reply.

Thankyou for your help.

I logged into the server remotely and the suggestion works great.

Bump.

I am also having this problem with my desktop. But I am wondering if anyone knows why this is happening or how to fix it?
