Muon Distribution Upgrade Freezes on DPkg Input

muon (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

During upgrade from 15.04 to 15.10, muon froze when configuring salt-minion. I later discovered that salt-minion had a configuration file change and required input from the user as to whether to keep the existing config or replace it with the new upstream configuration. I suspect the request for user input may have frozen the upgrader.

Note that Muon was completely frozen, so I was unable to send a bug report from the menu. This report is from the command line.

Reproduction Steps:
