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 ?.
Check the yes command.
You probably want something like
yes | apt-get upgrade -youroptionshere
yes N | apt-get upgrade -youroptionshere
apt-get has alread a switch just for that : apt-get -y upgrade . RTFM.
And -y does not cover all warnings, as you would see if you RTFM
yourself. Next time try to answer the question.
