Sounds like you need to make some swap space. Better yet add more RAM.

the swap (2GB) is at 2% when running the command, i wish i could add more RAM :frowning:

i killed x11 ( for more RAM) and run the command again, apt seems to be using 98% of memory and completes the upgrade without getting stuck

So , there is a update now (+ 50 packages ) , and no out of ram problem .

Always after you updates recommend doing a sudo apt-get autoclean
I also have a problem with memory.
