Public bug reported:

Before I start: this issue does not inconvenience me very much.  I am
mainly submitting it because it provides a good test case to investigate
dpkg hangs, which it seems do occur from time to time.  If it is not of
interest please feel free to close again, or to let the bug expire.

When I install the mainline daily kernel i386 headers and builds built
on October 11 and on October 13 in an almost completely fresh 32-bit
Ubuntu 16.04 virtual machine in VirtualBox, installation is painfully
slow - currently, after nearly two hours, it is on the second package of
three.  I do the installation by manually downloading the headers-all,
the headers-generic and the image-generic packages (for completeness I
download on the host, and I scp them from the guest) and executing "sudo
dpkg -i" in a gnome-terminal on the guest.
