Thank you. I vividly remember going through that post, but figured the texlive 2012 backport was an exception. I just figured that perhaps there was something I could have overlooked, especially that I installed texlive-full

comment Upgrade hangs on ttf-mscorefonts-installer
@Lacritsbollar So should I just terminate the whole process? How then do I proceed after that --how do I continue from where setup process stopped from and how do I know which package(s) to remove?

comment How configure Java applet to work behind proxy?
@Lekensteyn; Java Control Panel is only available for Sun/Oracle JDK --you will have to migrate to Oracle JDK if you want to use it. However, when you install Icedtea plugin, javaws will use your browser proxy details.
