LC_ALL=C, please (for future bug reports). Your typical package
maintainer is much more likely to speak English than Romanian.

It may be worth adding "set -x" to the script to see precisely where
it's getting stuck.

My only other suggestion at this point is to try out older versions of
the kernel and/or the nvidia packages, and see if there's a known good
combination that works (is this a regression of some sort?). Other
than that, I've no idea what's happening.
