I had the same problem right after installing and activating the apache2 server. I ran

sudo invoke-rc.d apache2 stop

and then Y worked fine for me after that on the same apt-get I was running before. Something similar might be going on with you.

Just try to press Enter without typing the y or n keys.

@v2r I think it does answer; But without any explanation how that works, and why that makes a difference (I think it does not) that's not an answer worth keeping, I agree. –  Volker Siegel Oct 25 at 19:39
