update-manager stopps at about 76%

Bug Description

Since some days I get a warning, that in further time there had been some troubles with updating so that now there will be an unclompete partial update. This is when working with GUI. If I take the terminal for updating. the process of controlling the softwaresources stopps at about 76%. If possible, I show you 2 .png-files to documentate. This ist with Lubuntu Precise, installed from Alternate-CD.
The same trouble is with Ubuntu Precise. Both OS are working on the same physical machine with different partitions. So I'm shure of what I'm talking about.
With best regards, Michael
