Running Ubuntu 16.04, Lenovo Legion Y720, i7 gen7, nvidia gtx 1060 (nvidia binary driver 415.27).

Was doing normal update and uprgade (sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade) when I saw that six packages were not being upgraded. Did some searching and another forum post told me to run sudo apt-get -s dist-upgrade so I did that and it appeared to work.

When I tried to update and upgrade I received this error:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

So I proceeded to run sudo dpkg --configure -a and received this output:

Setting up linux-modules-4.15.0-47-generic (4.15.0-47.50~16.04.1) ...

Setting up linux-headers-4.15.0-47-generic (4.15.0-47.50~16.04.1) ...

...but then it just hanged on the second line and never moved past it, even after waiting a significant amount of time. Not sure what to do at this point.
