View Full Version : [ubuntu] Fresh install of Hardy - Update Manager, apt-get upgrade hangs whole system

August 25th, 2008, 12:51 AM

I have just installed Hardy on a machine.

After installing I went to install the updates - 233 or so of them. Each time I try, the whole system hangs. The clock doesn't progress, mouse doesn't work and ctr-alt-backspace doesn't work either.

I have tried several times both with the GUI updater and sudo apt-get upgrade from the console.

The machine has had an installation of Hardy on before but on a different disk and the current disk used to have it on, but on a different machine.

I have looked around and there were some posts about the hosts been wrong, but mine is fine, i.e. no domain before the hostname.

How do I fix this?

Many thanks,
