apt dist-upgrade stuck - Concrete_panda - 07-29-2020

Hey guys,

it is already the second time that I experience this. I want to update with

Code:
sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

and the process gets stuck when setting up util_linux. I don't get any error message, thus nothing happens any more.

What could that be?

Best,
Thomas

/var/lib/dpkg/info/util-linux.postinst was hanging for some reason. I shut the phone down as I didn't have time to dig further when I ran into it. I just powered up and reran 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to check the details and it completed without hanging.

That worked, thanks.

Had this problem again and the reboot trick did not work.
Seems to be hanging with the command
Code:
deb-systemd-invoke restart 'fstrim.timer'

manually running that command and / or stopping / starting does not help. Figured the service would restart with a reboot, so modified the package and commented out that line in the postinst script which seems to have worked. However it also stalled at other services that rely on fstrim.timer I suppose.
