Infinite loop in dpkg: Hang at 'Unpacking'
Binary package hint: apt
When I ran APT the last time successfully, the command hung at "Unpacking". I made the mistake of killing it, and so I decided to rm the /var/lib/dpkg/lock file and run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a'. I now definitely think that it might be an infinite loop causing the problem, as it hangs without consuming any CPU.
