Hung Update Manager Mint 13 KDE? Ok to kill?

Postby dss91 on Fri Aug 10, 2012 10:08 am

I've just freshly installed Mint 13 KDE after I had some issues with my Mint 12 installation - rather than spend a bunch of time trying to fix a version that will be obsolete in less than a year, I figured I'd just upgrade to Mint 13. After a fresh install, I ran the update manager and found that I had an update to do (mintupdate 4.4.2). I clicked install updates and after giving it the ok to install the updates, the manager has appeared to be hung. It's been like this for over a day now.

Is it ok to kill it and retry through the terminal?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Oh please, please do. I can't bear the thought of someone waiting for a day or more for a single update to complete - what do you do for your day job, are you a saint or something :lol:

Its doubly tragic when the update concerned is only mintupdate. You may well like it, but it is not essential to anything. So please update using the terminal or I won't be able to sleep tonight. :lol:
