When I'm trying to install a package, say chromium I type this in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install chromium

Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

Then when I type in yes or y or Y or whatever I tried everything but no matter what I type it shows up like this:


I just did a clean installation of 13.04 yesterday and didn't have this problem before when I was using 12.04 ( y always works ). How do I fix it?
