I recently setup two Linux Lite 2.6 machines (one 32bit, one 64bit).

When attempting to install updates today, on both machines, the update dialogs got stuck on:

"Processing triggers for menu (2.1.46ubuntu1)..."

Any ideas why this might happen? The only choice I have is to cancel, and it's been like almost a half hour.

Here is the output:

Code: [Select]
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

but the "Installing - Please wait..." dialog is still up? Does this mean it actually completed, but never closed the dialog?

The -f wasn't recognized and threw an errror:

Code: [Select]
E: Command line option 'f' [from -f] is not known.

without the -f I get:

Ok.  I was hoping the output would show what happens right before you get stuck.  If you could get a log showing that, it would help.  But I understand your only option when running Install Updates is to use the Cancel button.

Let's try this:
1) Menu, System, Install/Remove Software. 
2) Click on Edit, Mark All Upgrades. 
3) Click on Edit, Apply Marked Changes.

You might also try Edit, Fix Broken Packages.

Also, do you recall what you last installed?  Looking up your error online, it often seems like it was related to something the user recently installed.

"Mark All Upgrades" did not select any packages.

I think the last package to get installed was Plastic SCM, but I've done a few updates in the past without issue.

This was the first time it hung on me, and it was strange it did it on both systems, though they are setup identically (save for one being 32bit and the other being 64bit).

I ended up just canceling, I think I'll start updating from the commandline so I can see where it gets stuck in the future.

Too bad there wasn't a way to show that through the GUI, currently seems you can only view the log at the end of the process.

If you don't get the issue from the command I supplied, but you do with the GUI, then the GUI runs a different command.  I wouldn't recommend giving up on the GUI.  It's doing what it's supposed to do.  And in your case, it's letting us know something is odd.  The GUI also more than likely produces a log even when you cancel out of the process.  I just don't know where that log file is.  Perhaps someone else will chime in.

Did you try Edit, Fix Broken Packages within Install/Remove Software?

Also consider Lite Tweaks (Menu, System, Lite Tweaks).  The Autoremove Packages and Package Cache are safe options.

I'll keep my eye on it for future updates and see if I can narrow it down. I'll post in this thread if I get more info.

I am no expert, but the first thing that sticks out to me is that you have debian repositories in your sources. As far as I am aware this is a bad idea.
more info here:  https://askubuntu.com/a/346741

from a link at the above answer, "If you added Debian's experimental software sources to your Ubuntu system, they would almost always have higher-versioned packages than provided by the Ubuntu software sources (since most Ubuntu packages come from Debian). Consequently all the software in your system would be upgraded to the Debian experimental versions. This upgrade process would very likely fail, leaving your system or the package manager in a non-functional state."

As far as I know this applies to all packages from debian repositories being used in Ubuntu and Ubuntu based operating systems.

Oh wow, I wasn't aware of that.

Unfortunately I needed the lastest version of MonoDevelop (so I followed the instructions below):

http://www.mono-project.com/docs/getting-started/install/linux/

I'm assuming those are the debian packages you are refering to.

These are the sources I was referring to:

Hit http://download.mono-project.com wheezy/main i386 Packages
Hit http://download.mono-project.com wheezy-apache24-compat/main i386 Packages

Just from personal experience every time I tried to mix sources from Debian to Ubuntu, I was left with a broken system.

avj is right you know. But it is your box. Already you suffer from poisoning the well.
