Bug#43002: dpkg: "[Press any key to continue]" actually needs Return/Enter.

Package: dpkg
Severity: normal

(I'm not certain whether it's dpkg or apt-get which is producing this
message.  I think it's dpkg.)

When the "[Press any key to continue]" prompt appears, pressing the
space bar does not cause execution to continue -- the user must press
Return or Enter.  Changing the message would suffice to fix the problem.

Actual command used was "apt-get install gcc".  The new gcc (2.95-3)
has a warning message and prompts as shown above.
