[EDIT] This has resolved itself. When the installation started from the direct install option in the boot menu kept hanging, I canceled it. Upon canceling the system booted from the flash drive. I tried installing from the live OS again and this time, it worked.

2011 Macbook Air. Previously had Ubuntu on this machine. I formatted the (sole) SSD, then booted into Linux Lite from USB flash drive. Now trying to install but installation hangs at "Updates and other software", so doesn't even proceed to installation types. Been hanging there for more than 10 mins now.

I also tried direct install from the USB boot menu ... same thing.

So.... what now?

  • Linux Lite: 5.4 64bit

  • CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7300 @ 2.00GHz

  • MEMORY: 3Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller

  • Kernel: 5.x
That happens when I select the option to update during installation. Try it without downloading the updates until after Linux Lite has completed the installation and reboot.

It wasn't that. I've updated my OP. Thanks for your response though!
