There are several vbox packages available for update. When I choose
any one of those to update in aptitude I get what seems to be an

Please post the output of 'aptitude full-upgrade'
Several messages go by and are erased and then it never returns.
(as if is is in a loop)
I redirected the output to a file and the file contains:
Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
Reading extended state information...
Initializing package states...
Reading task descriptions...
after terminating with Ctrl-C
This doesn't help
Try running aptitude from command line in some
xterm with a big enough scroll buffer.
I did run it in an xterm. There is no more output.
I'm still guessing it's in a loop trying to find a solution to a
dependency problem. I have seen other dependency situations where there
is a definite pause while a solution is calculated. Neither of my
machines is super fast.
