Reading state information hangs when installing percona-xtradb-cluster-56

Dear Colleagues

I am experiencing a very strange issue when trying to install the Percona XtraDB Cluster.

When I run: apt-get update && apt-get install percona-xtradb-cluster-56 percona-xtradb-cluster-server-5.6

The updating proceeds as expected and then when the next section starts, the system just hangs. I see no progress what-so-ever.


It never goes further than that. It’s been at this position for the past 30 minutes.

At first I thought it may be synaptic, so I installed apache2 and php5 and everything worked as expected. It only hangs when I try installing percona-xtradb-cluster-56 percona-xtradb-cluster-server-5.6

I’ll appreciate any assistance as I’m utterly stumped.

Thank you
