I see you are having trouble upgrading, please see this page for
advice - it worked for me:


Version: GnuPG v1.2.4 (GNU/Linux)
Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://enigmail.mozdev.org


by the way...
after downloading all packages, it gets to "running test transaction" and then "Success!".
did you have to wait a LOOOOONNNNGGG time after this?
on my first goround it finally went past this and did exactly one package upgrade then appeared to die.
I waited 30 minutes but not a single blink on the hard drive, and I opened another console and checked "top" and everything was "asleep".

let me know if I should just let it sit after that first package upgrade. thanks.
