Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I had just updated 12.10, so I can upgrade to 13.04. It was going fine and I was looking at the terminal to see all those complicated things it's doing. Then a window called Debconf on MyComputerName and it said Configuring libc6.

I don't know what this means can I get some assistance?

That doesn't sound like an error message. Did you get an actual error message? –  Taymon Jul 22 '13 at 2:40
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This is ambiguous, vague or incomplete and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. Please be a little bit more specific or detailed about the problem. –  edwin Jul 22 '13 at 2:41
During install or update, there are some settings windows that should appear. You can feel yourself free clicking "Next" button here. –  Danatela Jul 22 '13 at 2:44
I'm sorry maybe error isn't the right word to use. It didn't say it was an error message. The window said "Configuring libc6" and under that it said "Services to restart for GNU libc library upgrade" and under it was a little bar to type stuff in. And a forward button. I don't think I can be more specific than this. –  Tea Jul 22 '13 at 3:00
What happened when you "pressed" the forward button? (This is happening in the Terminal where the mouse is usually not effective, so you will probably have to use the Tab key to move through the "widgets" until the Forward button is selected, then press Spacebar to press it. (Enter might also work.) –  Eliah Kagan Jul 22 '13 at 3:10
