I have installed 14.04 LTS. I am having problems with the software updater and the system settings. The original install seemed to stop at a certain point. Right now, I am getting a partial upgrade for the software updater and it says DKMS: install completed. I then try to shut it down and I get the message that the upgrade is still running. This type of thing has happened several time before on the same install. My main question is: How doe you tell if the update or install is actually happening or if it is hung up? I have tried leaving these upgrades and installs go for up to 30 minutes with no results.
You are not alone. I had the same problem 2 weeks ago, I think its the ISO-file we used. I solved the problem by doing the first update via the terminal, hereafter the software updater worked just fine - every time.
Start terminal, and type or copy / paste the following: ( when asked for password type (blindly) your password)
sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
- removes the packages from your local repository
- fetches the new and updated packages
- do the actual installation
As an added bonus you can plainly see whats going on under the hood.
