If it happens during the dselect selection process, that would be a
bug on dselect (reportbug dselect), if it happens after you've
selected update, that would be apt-get, but if it happens when apt-get
says it's running the setup for gom-ct, that would be a bug on
gom-ct. Which is probably the most likely, include some more details

reportbug gom-ct

if you haven't used reportbug yet, and you're not familiar with elm,
you should first, as root, 

update-alternatives --config editor

and choose nano or ae.

Also, put your email address and realname in /etc/reportbug.conf
