Only problem with 11.04 liveusb is that it showed 300 updates
available, and it looked like 200 of them were language packs. I
was installing them all but eventually ran out of room on my 4gb
usb stick. So now only updating chromium and flash (since main
purpose is web browsing).
As far as I know, the only way to get this kind of issue is to install
hundreds of language packs. Very few people do that, most of us do not
speak *that* many languages! There are many packs on the CD, but by
default we do not install all of them.
The output of
dpkg-query -W language-pack-\?\?
might be interesting to know in working on this issue.
If I am correct, the workaround is to not install (or uninstall!) all
the language packs for languages you do not need :)
More generally, if you do a lot of updates in a low-disk-space
sudo apt-get clean
can free up significant disk space.
