    • Upgrade package stuck at "Reading package lists..."

      I have a single update pending for libcurl3-gnutls-7.26.0-1. When I try to install from GUI, I get the info dialog open, but stuck at the first line: "Reading package lists...". No progress from there.
      Tried to kick it a few times, or reboot. No joy.

      When I do "apt-get update" from CLI, it ends with the following. Not sure it's related.
