apt-get install uucp hangs

apt-get install uucp hangs after displaying "Setting up ssl-cert (1.0.23ubuntu2) ..." on the latest version of Core (downloaded yesterday).

I'm sure there's a simple fix, but my head stilll has trouble wrapping itself around SSL certs. :(

Ah, I figured it out from here, if anyone has the same problem: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=468789

Hmm, strange... I can't reproduce it...

But thanks for posting, and extra brownie points for posting back with a solution! :)

It's also strange because that bug report says that the bug was resolved (as of ssl-cert v1.0.16 - and TKL 11.x/Ubuntu 10.04 has v1.0.23). Perhaps this issue is only triggered when other components are also installed? Also my fairly fresh v11.3 Core machine is a VM (running under KVM - installed from ISO) so perhaps that is a factor?

I also had a look on the Ubuntu bag tracker but the only bug I could find that seemed related was this one. Although the result is slightly different (ie dpkg error as opposed to your freeze).
