Yes, removing 'ntp' from the startup helped (of course, ntp isn't
running any more...). Everything else is working fine...
The same happens when I just want to upgrade: During the configuration
of the ntp package it hangs. Yes, it still hangs after an hour... I
can interrupt it with Ctrl-C, and then everything else gets configured
just fine (besides xntp3, since it depends on ntp), and I get the
message that for the two packages (ntp and xntp3) there were errors
encountered while processing...
