Mint update doesn't work

Postby Rizm on Thu Nov 26, 2009 10:06 am

I can't update Mint anymore. When I start Mint Update it all stays 'grey'.

I can see it's looking for updates. I can see it found 41 updates, but I can't use 'apply' or click anything else. After approximately one minute Mint update just hangs and I have to use force quit.

Does anybody know how can fix this?

Thanks in advance,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

My guess is that it could well take a lot more than a minute to load 41 updates.

Try again!

I tried again and waited 15 minutes this time. But I didn't got my hopes up because when I did a fresh install, Mint Update found 253 updates and these where loaded within seconds. But like I said, I waited 15 minutes and checked again. Nothing. Mint Update was stuck like a brick in the wall. Had to use force quit to close down.

Solved the problem by doing a fresh install of the new Linux Mint Helena. :wink:
