tasksel hanging up at installing packages

i'm trying to use tasksel to install the webserver packages, and it goes to the installation screen and stays at 0%. i tried again and i get the error "tasksel aptituded failed(255)'

any ideas what would cause this?

Try update first before run the tasksel with: aptitude update
Also make sure the connection is working.
