Problem with dselect, dpkg

I am having a problem with dselect; the computer hung while installing
software, and would not respond to control-c, to trying to log in on
another console, nothing. I rebooted, and now dpkg, dselect and apt all
hang when trying to do anything. Is there a file I can edit/nuke to fix
this? I tried to recover by replacing /var/lib/dpkg/status with an
earlier stored file, but this does not seem to make any difference. I
could really use the help; thanks.
