That's debconf, asking for user input. which might want terminal,

set the following for non-interactive install:

export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
export DEBIAN_PRIORITY=critical

(debootstrap should do that for you, but running postinst by default

Check also that you have proper pty support in kernel enabled, and
/dev/pts mounted.

"rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups
