Maintainer scripts that are used under D-I are not allowed to use stdout 
or stdin to interact with the user. The bug is in the packages that you 
are trying to install, not in the installer.

Normally update-inetd should not have to prompt for answers during a new 
installation of a package. Try to find out why it does that.
