TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Update fails/stalls

First and foremost, thanks for the great service, huge timesaver :)

I installed the Trac on vps and I am unable to update or upgrade using apt-get.

This is the output on my machine:

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

  When calling dpkg --configure -a:

root@kb:~#  dpkg --configure -a
Setting up webmin (1.490-turnkey+1+ga06198f) ...

And the terminal freezes...

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I cannot reproduce this

I just installed a clean trac-2009.10 from iso, and issued the below commands. Both the update and upgrade succeed. Did you issue a ctrl-c during the upgrade?
apt-get update
apt-get -y upgrade

Re-installed the node

Since the machine was virtually clean, I reinstalled the node and the update worked fine.

Upgrade on the other hand is stuck on update-initramfs (over 2 hours)

Could this be due to low system resources (one vps.net node)?
