I am running Debian 5.0 Lenny. Every time I perform
$ apt-get update
and after packages are updated, depmod stalls on trying to set up linux image:
# apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
bind9-host dnsutils libbind9-50 libisccc50 libisccfg50 liblwres50
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 6 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
Setting up linux-image-2.6.26-2-686 (2.6.26-26lenny2) ...
At this point the process stalls and never terminates.
What may be the reason for the stall? Is it possible that there is some lock file that have to be deleted?
