apt-get doesn't stop on Ctrl-c, what to do?
Occasionally I have connection problem with apt-get (typically because I use it behind a proxy and try to install/upgrade flash). I have been trying sending Ctrlc but it would not stop. I thought it was something wrong with synaptic but obviously I just tried with a terminal and don’t know how to stop it now.
The bug report mentions that even Ctrl + doesn’t work.
Suspend the job: Ctrl + Z
sudo killall apt-get
