Another couple of possiblities:
1. Not enough swap space (the OOM killer?!).
2. Swap space is buggy. Run the commands
swapoff <name of swap device>
mkswap -c <name of swap device>
swapon <name of swap device>
3. Too many elements in the /etc/apt/sources.list
(this was an error with old apt's but should be
OK nowadays). Fix can be found on google.
P.S. Yes. I know couple < 3. But I am a mathematician so try
arguing that one with me!
Factorials were someone's attempt to make math LOOK exciting.
