View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update stalling

September 3rd, 2012, 02:56 PM

I'm running an 11.10 Server with a Gnome GUI.

I did an update today from Update Manager and part way through it stalled. This has happened on many previous updates.

Each time the symptom is the same ...

I always switch on "Details" when updating and when it stalls the update window shows a filename, always /tmp/something-or-other

If I then type :Q! (like I was coming out of vi), it unfreezes and carries on as normal.

Any ideas?

Many Thanks
