ubuntu upgrade sticks

Posted April 12, 2014 4.2k views
I am trying to upgrade my ubuntu server and I run "apt-get upgrade" and everything seems fine until the upgrade hangs and this appears highlighted "/tmp/tmpmSOLHZ" Actually the temp file name changes each time I try to upgrade. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

ca-certificates (20130610) unstable; urgency=low

  CAcert root and class3 certificates are now installed as individual
  files, no longer as the concatenation of the two. The certificates
  are installed as cacert.org_root.crt and cacert.org_class3.crt for
  ease of identification.

  Remove obsolete CA.
  Remove obsolete SPI CA certificate expired in 2007.
