Refreshing Software Cache Stalls

I get an error when checking for updates. I’m told I need to refresh the software cache, when I do…it Freezes/Stalls. I can’t do anything but reboot.

I recall you are using:

Are you using the GUI or the command line to refresh the cache? I’d advise to run:

# apt-get update

from the terminal, and share the output with us, we may get a hit or two about this issue. Make sure you save all your work before doing so, in case another reboot will be necessary.

Try this
sudo apt-get clean ; sudo apt-get remove ; sudo apt-get autoremove ; sudo apt-get update
The first two commands do some cleaning;

I believe that worked. Thank You

I’m certain you guys forgot more than I know…Kudos
