Re: Reassigning

reassign 270865 apt


        The bug, it would appear, is in the apt man page: it should
 not promise what it can't deliver. As per the bug report:
 The documentation for the "-y" switch on apt-get indicates:
               Automatic yes to prompts; assume "yes" as answer to all
               prompts and run non-interactively.  If an undesirable
               situation, such as changing a held package or removing
               an essential package occurs then apt-get will abort.
               Configuration Item: APT::Get::Assume-Yes.

	In order for ucf to behave as if a y was pressed, ucf needs to
 be told that it was running under apt, and that apt had been given
 the -y option. This is not the case.
