When using Update Manager in Ubuntu 12.04, it keeps freezing. I get the "Applying changes" screen after password auth but it just sits there @ waiting (this was for a good 5 mins today). So I cancelled, rebooted, and updated via terminal (sudo apt-get update --> sudo apt-get upgrade --> sudo apt-get dist-upgrade) which did not raise any issues (although it did not downloaded anything, just went straight to installing new packages....I'm guessing Update Manager already fetched the new packages during my issue ? :-/ ) I was able to update yesterday with UM without any problems, but that was just one minor security update (less than 1MB). Today, I had 10 updates to download (including new kernel update - linux-image-3.2.0-48-generic-pae 3.2.0-48.74) when it froze again. Suggestions?
1) Since this was my first time using terminal to update, just want to confirm I used the right commands: sudo apt-get update --> sudo apt-get upgrade --> sudo apt-get dist-upgrade . This will ensure my system gets all the necessary security and recommended updates correct?
