Installing Ubuntu, stuck on 40% Configuring Apt

This is probably no longer an issue as I encountered it years ago, but occasionally when installing Ubuntu on my laptop the installation would hang at 40% "configuration apt" To fix this I did the following:
       Ctrl + Alt + F2 (To get to a different terminal)
                # ifconfig eth0 down
                # ifconfig eth1 down
        Ctrl + Alt + F1 to get back
After install, fix /etc/apt/sources.list
In other words, uncomment alot of lines)
