This question already has an answer here:
So I am writing a script that changes various aspects of an Ubuntu 16.04.4 machine and one of the tasks is upgrading all packages. To do this I use
apt-get -y upgrade. (
-y for auto yes on dialogue and provide automation) This works fine and is automated for nearly all packages but once every so often I will get the interaction pane depicted below.
I'm assuming there is no easy way to handle and answer these dialogues in a uniform way across all packages but is there a way to disable such an interaction and provide a truly automated, interaction-free upgrade?
