Ordinarily, I don't care to use these emo-esque expressions, preferring to use words that have explicit definitions - but what you are referring to is definitely more of an "ugh" than an "ack".

"Ack" is something that applies when one is reacting in the acute sense to an unexpected unpleasant discovery and/or relatively short-term circumstance. "Ugh" is something that applies to the day-to-day disgust surrounding a denial of reality and/or enduring of an untenable situation over a relatively long-term period of time.

I just wanted to set you straight on that. Sorry to interrupt the flow of topic.

As you were.
