Update stalls while updating Mint Linux 12

Postby jiminoregon on Sun Nov 18, 2012 5:55 pm

While trying to install Mintupdate 4.3.8 it stalls very soon at ""Preparing ttf-mscorefonts -installer . . ." while showing "End-User Licensed Agreement for Microsoft Software" and the agreement itself in the details box. Any ideas on how to get past this obstacle??

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Install that package in a terminal then run mintupdate again afterwards
Code: Select all
apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
