Hm, odd. I'd suggest waiting until the updates seem to have finished
installing (ie, disk becomes quiescent) then press Ctl-Alt-Backspace
(should restart the GUI with prejudice).

Note that next time you reboot, the resolv.conf file could be reset.
Please set up the ISPs nameservers again and post back here if that
happens. Also, I suggest reporting this GUI problem at launchpad.net if
you can figure out how.


Any opinion expressed is mine (or else I'm playing devils advocate for
the sake of a good argument). My employer had nothing to do with this
