I did all of the updates and now I am upgrading to version 8.04 LTS.All of the updates are downloaded, the install begins and is about 3/4 of the way completed; howver, the system hangs up "installing new version of config file /etc/belocs/iso-639.def......Generating locales.....en_AU.UTF-8.....Can anyone provide any assistance with this please.Greatly appreciated.
