    ubuntu 10.04 LTS hang on unpacking

    hey there how are you all?

    I wanted to say that my ubuntu 10.04 LTS lucid lynx is having some troubles when I try to install packages from the web or through any software utility

    when the packages are downloaded successfully and ready to be unpacked the system hang and does not respond at all even the keyboard stops working ,so I force the system to restart "using ALT+SysRq+S then ALT+SysRq+B".

    and when the system is up and running again it continues smoothly until i try to begin !

    please help me ,,it sucks

    Hi

    Open a terminal and type

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Enter your password. It will not be echoed to the screen.

    If there are any errors then copy and paste then from the terminal into your next post.

    If there are no errors type

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install htop
    Post back the results.

    Kind regards

    Did you run

    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get -f install
    to ensure all necessary packages are completely installed and configured?

    Thank you matt_symes for your time but when I installed htop and launched it from Application > System tools > Htop it opened a new terminal window with a bunch of info about the CPU,RAM and etc... I didn't know what to do with it
