when trying to install any program, or do a update, it always freezes at

Preparing to replace gzip 1.3.12-9ubuntu1 (using .../gzip_1.3.12-9ubuntu1_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement gzip ...

I've left it on for 2 days and it hasn't changed. I usually just quit out of apt-get and rm /dpkg/lock then --configure -a to reset it.

So can anybody help me, I'd like to actually be able to install stuff.

Using 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx
