ubuntu-release-upgrader (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Certain packages such as proxy contain configurations files which can be modified by the user. If there is difference between the file on disk on what is expected dpkg pauses and asks the user what to do. do-release-upgrade which is used by muon to upgrade in graphical mode does not present any notification of this or a way to supply this expected input. As a result it will hang indefinitely on encountering such a condition. Possibly forcing the use of recovery mode or a complete reinstall to fix the resulting system state.
