    cannot update or install new software

    Hi community,

    I'm a noob trying to get to grips with some update issues. I left my computer turned off for 3 months while I traveled overseas for work. when I returned I found I could not install new software or update either through the terminal or update manager. the process of updating stalls at:

    Preparing to replace zramswap-enabler 0.2.1-0~19~precise1 (using .../zramswap-enabler_0.2.1-0~25~precise1_all.deb) ...


    then freezes and nothing happens.

    Please help! is there a way I can resolve this without a fresh OS install?

    Cheers
