I am installing packages on remote server, using
ssh root@my-host "DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive DEBCONF_NONINTERACTIVE_SEEN=true apt-get --quiet --yes install w3m"
even though I have set
DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive, the installation gets stuck on following question, and I have to press enter manually:
Configuration file '/etc/w3m/config' ==> File on system created by you or by a script. ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer. What would you like to do about it ? Your options are: Y or I : install the package maintainer's version N or O : keep your currently-installed version D : show the differences between the versions Z : start a shell to examine the situation The default action is to keep your current version. *** config (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?
I suspect, the question is being asked by
dpkg --configure -a and not by
apt-get and therefore noninteractive is ignored.
How can I automate this and have default option selected automatically, without being asked ?
