I had a similar problem a few months ago and also resolved it by
installing first some basic packages and after the rest of the packages.
Before that, I tried to remove the file were install hanged but after
removing that, it hanged in other file (the next one, I think). I
repeated this process a several times times and as I removed the files,
the hang was always in the next file and the percentage of the installed
files grew. At some point, I've excluded enough files to complete the
After, I uninstalled everything (didn't trusted that kind of
installation), selected some basic packages and installed them and after
that I selected the rest of the packages and installed them also.
Everything went OK.
Maybe the setup cannot process such an amount of files like the one on a
full installation at one time.
