Ubuntu: 12.04 system keeps on hanging on "setting up gconf2


Since the update today dpkg and apt are both broken, and when I try to use them it recommends running:

sudo dpkg -configure -a  

which then starts

configuring gconf2 (3.2.5-0Ubuntu2)    

and just keeps on displaying this message without ever finishing it or giving any feedback at all. The same thing happens when I try to run the Update manager.


So I ran into a similar issue and it was hanging on /var/lib/dpkg/info/gconf2.postinst , which when I deleted I was able to configure the package.
