Apt-get Upgrade hangs on udev

I have an issue where it seems the command "apt-get upgrade" hangs on udev. Couple of questions. Should I not be upgrading the packages? Does this conflict with some of the backup tools turnkey uses?

Known bug in Ubuntu 10.04/TKL V11.x

Personally I avoid it by not running apt-get upgrade (TKL auto installs security updates everyday anyway). But if you have the problem and need to repair apt and apply a better workaround you can follow the instructions in the post here:
