Linux Mint install halts while "Saving installed packages"

Post by Gabethebabe » Fri May 11, 2018 10:46 am

Wassup guys,

I have a desktop with a 500 GB HD w/WIN10 and a 100GB HD w/Linux Mint 17. Using GRUB2 for the dual boot.
Now I want to upgrade Linux Mint, but the install screen gets suck while "Saving installed packages". I left my computer running, but it was stuck for 2h or so when I gave up. See screenshot below.

I have tried twice: booting from DVD and booting from USB with same result.
When I install and I get the choice what I want to do (like "Install alongside" or "Erase Disk"). I pick "Something else".

Bootloader goes to sda (500GB disk)
I pick the partition that has Linux Mint 17 (sdb5) installed as /
sdb1 is the swap and remains the swap

Then I proceed with the install and it gets stuck.

No idea what I am doing wrong

Is your computer installed in UEFI or Legacy BIOS mode.?

Hello, I have an older computer that doesn't have these options in BIOS. ASUS P5QL/EPU mainboard, i think the BIOS is from 2009

Your CPU is boiling (temperature 100 c).
