depmod stalls on setting up linux-image-2.6.26-2-686 (Debian 5.0 Lenny)


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) ...
Running depmod.
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?
