Re: Update manager issues
Can we get clarification on the below please.
Did it stop when downloading the software or installing ?
About 6 months ago, update manager stopped working. It would start an update, but about half way through it would stop.
Have you tried to close it any other way such as using xkill or from the command line ?
Clicking to kill it would cause it to expand to full screen.
Can i understaand this. When you close Update-Manager that has stalled, by clicking on the close button update-manager goes full screen and Ubuntu itself freezes ?
The Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (32 bit) I am running stops dead and only a re-boot will cure the lock up.
Is it ubuntu that freezes or is it because update-manager, that is now full screen, will not except any input ?
When you say full screen, do you mean maximized or actually taken over the entire display ?
Can you get to a console ? Does sysreq resiub reboot gracefully ?
Have you run update-manager from the terminal to get debug information ?
