2.1 -> 2.1.1 Upgrade; stuck on packages installing in the background
I just preformed a 2.1 -> 2.1.1 upgrade yesterday and, for the past 16 hours, I am being greeted with the 'Packages are currently being reinstalled in the background' notification with the funky hard drive GIF.
While I do have packages installed - about 10 of them - I can't imagine it'd take 16+ hours to reinstall them.
Can someone please advise of the next steps?
Search the forum….it seems that some has not made it to the mirrors and therefore halts the installation!
Oh so it's the same issue as with folks not being able to install Snort and the likes? So what's next – just wait until the mirrors come up?
If your system works fine after upgrade and you are sure that all packages have been installed properly, then this is just a package lock. Go to Diagnostics: Backup/restore and click Clear Package Lock button.
