Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

I would love to help out, but I need a little direction. These bug reports
have always been somewhat cryptic to me. What is "SIGSEGV" and how would I
make sure its running while performing operations with update-manager?
Please let me know, as I would love to participate in testing this. By the
way, I am now running x86-64 Intrepid Ibex.

Hi drsaamah, for a definition of SIGSEGV you can read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIGSEGV

Are you experiencing the same issue as the original reporter ? If so, please follow these instructions to have apport report a new bug about your crash that can be dealt with by the automatic retracer.

If you are running the Ubuntu Stable Release you might need to enable apport in /etc/default/apport and restart.

If you are using Ubuntu with the Gnome desktop environment - launch nautilus and navigate to your /var/crash directory and double click on the crash report you wish to submit.
If you are using Kubuntu or Xubuntu you can file the crash using /usr/share/apport/apport-qt --crash-file=/var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash in a terminal - where _my_crash_report.crash is the crash you would like to report.

I'm closing this bug report since the process outlined above will automatically open a new bug report which can then dealt with more efficiently. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
