Terrible bug: update all packages freeze my machine


Hi guys, I’ve got several outdated packages (120 or kind of)

first problem: atom takes a lot for display outdated packages, after several minutes atom start to show outdate packages

worst problem: after click update all my laptop freeze (twice) , not the atom app, the whole linux was freeze and I need reboot

please let me know how fix it and if in next releases would be fixed, thanks


Have you tried just updating one package at a time? Also, I believe the command-line utility, apm, will update them in series (rather than parallel) if you run apm upgrade.

I’ve opened a bug to investigate this too here:
