    Question Re: unable to down load updates

    I am having exactly the same problem on my wife's PC (Ubuntu 12.04). Update manager says there are 20 updates to install but when we try to install them it fails with this message:

    installArchives() failed: Preconfiguring packages ...
    Preconfiguring packages ...
