I have been running Xubuntu 14.04 for several weeks without a problem. Last night I did a dist-upgrade and my keyboard and mouse froze, and the cap lock key started flashing. I did a cold reboot and tried apt-get dist-upgrade again...I received the message that I needed to run sudo dpkg --configure -a.
I have tried running that command and also sudo dpkg --force -all --configure -a, but each time I do, the system freezes at this:
Setting up libc6:amd64 (2.18-0ubuntu5)...
Then the system needs to be rebooted.
If I don't try to fix the problem, the system works OK, but, obviously, I can't leave it like this. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
