can't upgrade via terminal

Postby mgh on Sun Oct 23, 2011 2:20 pm

Hello All,

I am running LM Debian dual boot, and have been for several months now. Today I tried to use the terminal to update and then upgrade. When upgrading, I get to a point where I get a message about
"now we recommend to use modern Japanses font packages such as" and goes on with a list of a few.

I cannot get beyond this point. There is no prompt asking me for any input, it just sits there doing nothing. If I hit enter a few times, it will come up with a line and (END), but when I close the terminal, it tells me there are still processing running, so the upgrade does not finish.

What am I supposed to do, or what can I do, to get beyond this so I can use the terminal for upgrading again?

Thanks for any help.

when it comes to that point again, hit q and see if the upgrades proceed.

you are not seeing there a normal terminal window, it's an informative window and q is quit so that the process in the terminal can resume.
