View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 upgrade hangs at libhin1

November 12th, 2018, 05:38 AM
I am on a binge upgrade of servers from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04. Some of the upgrades are going fine and some of the servers the upgrade hangs [at this point][1]:

Preparing to unpack .../libnih1_1.0.3-6ubuntu2_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking libnih1:amd64 (1.0.3-6ubuntu2) over (1.0.3-4.3ubuntu1) ...
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.27-3ubuntu1) ...
Setting up libnih1:amd64 (1.0.3-6ubuntu2) ...

This is a known pitfall and the work around is [found here][2].

I am interested in knowing is why is this happening?

PS: These are all systems which are just been upgraded to 16.04 from 14.04 and are almost close to bare Ubuntu.
