It worked for me. But since the apache2 update contains a changed 
config file and a NEWS entry, it seems likely that your automatic 
update script does not handle one of these conditions correctly (which 
are rather rare in security updates). Either it gets confused by apt-
listchanges displaying the NEWS entry (if you have apt-listchanges 
installed) or dpkg tries to ask what to do with the changed config 
file and then fails due your script.

Without the full output of apt-get or aptitude, it is impossible to 
tell what the problem is.
