Attempted to add the Matlab installation and it asked me where my current installation was -- never have tried to install it before -- I hit cancel when it asked for the installation directory and now Ububtu Software Center bogs down the machine and everything in line to download and install behind it in the queue is hosed.
No places to hit pause or cancel for any of the line items. Just says "Applying Updates" and is in the list no matter what (I already closed out USC and restarted the machine several times). How should I proceed to get this out of the way? Is it an USC specific problem or an installation script problem? TIA
@dobey: I do not have matlab installed -- I was shopping on the USC, saw the matlab icon, tried to download the package. "Bogs down the machine" as in USC pulls 22% usage all by itself and the rest of the system suffers. The package is in limbo because it does not show as installed nor in history, so how do I kill the package from my USC download list?
