That usually means that the backend process does not start up and the
frontend is waiting for it to respond.  That's quite bad since you
basically can't debug the situation without help from the frontend.
It's a known bug that has been fixed in more recent versions of the

The backend has quite low requirements for a successful startup.
Usually, sudo has some problems.  Try this as "user":

    $ sudo /usr/libexec/apt-worker
    apt-worker: wrong invocation

If you see the error message "wrong invocation" from apt-worker, it
has been started successfully.

One common problem with sudo is that /etc/sudoers has the wrong

    $ sudo /usr/libexec/apt-worker 
    sudo: /etc/sudoers is mode 0640, should be 0440

Maybe some of the RTCom packages messes with /etc/sudoers?
