Yes, I got it during a fresh install and the process dies away before
any of the post-actions started. So there's actually nothing but the
downloaded packages. If it happend during update I would not worry too
much and simply retry.

Maybe I wait until tomorrow and hope that the problem vanishes. It seems
to be pretty reproducible because I got it with easybook and
texlive-scripts, too.
