No error messages, it just hangs like that. Usually when downloading a package, the progress bar stops just doesn’t continue anymore. Aborting doesn’t work, although the abort button seems to respond (sometimes it comes with the question whether to abort or not, but regardless of the answer the update screen stays stuck in its current situation)
I’ve redownloaded the ISO (32-bit this time instead of 64-bit). Checked it, checksum was okay. Burnt it with verification, no problem. Disc still said it was broken though >:( I installed it though, just to see if maybe it’d work anyway. Right now it’s updating (everything else is working fine, I’m using the computer I just installed Suse onto right now) but it seems to be hanging again
I really don’t get it. This time I used a different ISO, and I burnt it on another computer. Checksum was okay and data was verified, yet it doesn’t work - again. My initial enthousiasm is starting to die down a bit…
Well, I just gave up on the whole thing and went to watch some telly… and when I came back it had finished installing almost all the updates. Maybe I’m impatient? Lol. The updater is slow but at least it seems to work That’s good. Thanks everyone for your help and advise. Hope I’ll be able to stick with Linux for a bit longer this time instead of going back to Windows after a few days :shame:

I would not have installed from a disk that showed any errors.
If your download is from a reliable source and it checks out OK, and you have burnt to a media that you know to be reliable with your burner, and at the slowest speed available, then it is time to try a burn from different burning software.
This would not be the first time I have seen a windows CD burning program fail on a burn that needs to be as accurate as an OS does, even if it seems fine for every thing else.
