Bug#334710: xserver-xorg: Hangs in preinstall - migrating xserver-xfree86 debconf values
Just did a dist-upgrade today, and the upgrade picked up xserver.org among
many other packages, but the upgrade hangs on an attempt to configure
xserver-xorg. Interrupting and trying again produced the same result.
Attempts to run /usr/share/debconf/fix_db.pl did not make any difference.
I've seen similar bugs reporting "template" migration but could find no
reference to this.
Output is below:
95 upgraded, 9 newly installed, 13 to remove and 13 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/112MB of archives.
After unpacking 12.8MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
