have you got the syntax correct. Aptitude uses update, safe-upgrade,
full-upgrade --download only is an option but i've never used it.
"Upgrade" i think was deprecated.
I've not known aptitude hang but i've had it set up with aliases in
the bashrc so i rarely look at the man page these days. Good while
back like 2008 aptitude used to retain an icon for the 5 mins or so
before it cleared after doing an upgrade whereas apt-get's icon
cleared when you exited the terminal.
Try again and see what you get without the download - i think the
syntax is wrong.
