  When i try to update php5-common and related packages, from Version: 
5.3.3-7+squeeze3 to 5.3.3-7+squeeze7, i get the following info: WARNING: 
terminal is not fully functional/tmp/tmpcnqGaJ  (press RETURN).
After pressing return, the following is displayed:

php5 (5.3.3-7+squeeze5) squeeze-security; urgency=high  * The following 
new directives were added as part of security fixes:    - max_input_vars 
- specifies how many GET/POST/COOKIE input variables      may be 
accepted.  Default value is set to 1000.    - xsl.security_prefs - 
define forbidden operations within XSLT      stylesheets.  Write 
operations are now disabled by default.

php5 (5.3.3-7+squeeze4) squeeze-security; urgency=low  * Updated 
blowfish crypt() algorithm fixes the 8-bit character handling    
vulnerability (CVE-2011-2483) and adds more self-tests.  
Unfortunately    this change is incompatible with some old (wrong) 
generated hashes for    passwords containing 8-bit characters.  
Therefore the new salt prefix    '$2x$' was introduced which can be used 
as a replacement for '$2a$'    salt prefix in the password database in 
case the incompatibility is    found.

The terminal hangs and nothing is udated.
Same with apt and synaptic.
