It is simply stuck as "Enabling component of distribution" and "updating cache" in the waiting mode? The download never starts. Kind of let down as I was expecting an easier interface. I am downloading VLC media player by the way.
Additional details- My net speed is fast. At first I thought its because of our restricted network in our campus, (we don't have automatic updates through the net cos of some kind of firewall i guess) ..but downloading and manual updating happens in windows 7(dual OS in the same system)..but its simply stuck in waiting mode in ubuntu?
Please help as I am really looking forward to work full time on this platform :(
