Jobs at /etc/cron.daily not running (Ubuntu 10.10)

This seems to be a problem with /etc/cron.daily/apt

This script hangs and holds execution of the remaining jobs.

To fix this, manually edit the file /etc/cron.daily/apt, changing RandomSleep=1800 to a low value like RandomSleep=5.

You can manually run cron.daily to see what’s running by doing:

run-parts -v /etc/cron.daily
