Silence apt-get for real
I have a repository that I use to distribute my own (and 3rd-party)
packages to all my debian servers (20 servers placed around the
I test the upgrades before putting them in my repository and then I
have cron script on each of the servers that runs the following
apt-get upgrade -y --force-yes -qq
this was supposed to silence apt-get completely and make it choose
default values for all questions. However if I have package that
contains a file and this file is changed in between updates then I get
Configuration file `/etc/qmail/tcp.smtp'
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
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 : background this process to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** tcp.smtp (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? n
How can I get rid of this warning ? - I want apt-get to be completely
silent. I know that this could be dangerous - but in my case it is ok
given that it is me that control the repository and that I have tested
all the packages before putting them there.
So to put it short how do I silence apt-get completely ?.
