Let's forget about updates for a short while (they're needed, but may break things more than they're already broken). Let's go back into the logs. Reboot the machine so the hanging effect occurs, then reboot back to the mode you have access to all the things. Then look into /var/log/auth.log. Can you find entries for you tries at the time it hanged?
