update.manager unresponsive after installing updates

Bug #301970 reported by ulrich on 2008-11-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

Release: 8.10
update-manager: 1:0.93.34

update-manger notifies me of new packages. i click the icon, update-manager appears and shows updates that can be installed.
i click install, update-manger calculates everything, starts downloading and installs the packages.
after that, while calculating system status, update-manger is grayed out for sereal minutes, i cannot interact anymore.
top shows that update-manger does little to nothing while hanging.
eventually update-manger is back, the close button is active again and i can close the application.

this behavior started after i upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10

updates with aptitude or apt do not show such behavior.

please let me know how i can improve my bug report!

Hey Ulrich. What kind of machine are you using? What cpu, how much memory (RAM) ? This behavior has been observed on system with low RAM, I wonder if your machine fits into the pattern

sorry for the late reply....
unfortunately i can't confirm this bug anymore, cause i dumped my old hardware and now own a shiny new system with 4GB ram ;)
the old system that this bug occured on/in was indeed a little weak:
1GB RAM , AthlonXP 2600+, i386 kernel.

sorry that i can't supply much more information...
