    aptitude upgrade issue

    I have a mail server that I tried aptitude upgrade. However it always starts then get stuck on this screen and does nothing for 30 mins.... It happens each time, but my ns, and web server upgrade fine with no problems....

    This is the screen it gets stuck on:

    apache2 (2.2.15-1) unstable; urgency=low
    * This release adds and enables mod_reqtimeout, which limits the time
    Apache waits for a client to send a complete request. This helps to
    mitigate against certain denial of service attacks. In case of problems
    with slow clients, the timeout values can be adjusted in
    /etc/apache2/mods-available/reqtimeout.conf , or the module can be
    disabled with "a2dismod reqtimeout".

    Is that really all the output you have...? I don't recognize that from an upgrade statement whatsoever...

    I don't see where you enter the aptitude statement, I don't see it looking at the headers for new downloads... nothing. There has to be more, unless your system is completely borked!

    I'd prefer to see the output from the line you type in, to the next prompt on the cli.

    Hello, i am having the same issue.
    Do you have the backports repository enabled?
    (because i have it...)

    The 2.2.15-1 version does not exist on the other repos, so i guess that there may be a problem with this version package.

    Without backports the latest apache package is 2.2.14-5ubuntu8.2.
    I disabled the backports repo, updated. The problem still happened when trying to upgrade from terminal and even though it was supposed to upgrade to v2.2.14... this message of 2.2.15 appeared again& again & again...!

    Then i tried upgrading from my webmin panel... and magically it...upgraded!!!

    This works. It would be nice to have this messages somewhere else, not interrupting a process that maybe automatic.
