From ServerFault:

This answer:

apt-get install -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confold" --force-yes -y udev

Read the comments below the answer though. It suggests --force-yes is sometimes an extreme option although it’s not explained clearly.


An even better ServerFault answer is found here:

This Answer:

You can pass options to dpkg from apt. Interesting for you would be
the option –force-confold. The command looks like this:

apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confdef" -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confold" upgrade  

Setting --force-confdef as well makes apt-get still update the
config file if it hasn’t been edited, while --force-confold will
keep edited configuration files without asking.

To make this permanent, you can also set these options in your
apt.conf file:

Dpkg::Options {  
   "--force-confdef";  
   "--force-confold";  
}
