ubuntu upgrade sticks

April 12, 2014 3.5k 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

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

If /etc/apt/listchanges.conf exists, edit it and set frontend to none.
