Are you sure you want to install/upgrade the above packages? [Y/n/?/...]  n

Ack!  Something bad happened while installing packages.  Trying to recover:
Press return to continue.
It is ok for "install" to stop if i select not to install the packages that have bugs? If not, how can i fix it?
I've noticed the ****** Exit with an error by force in order to stop the installation. ****** but i thought i'd better ask.
Thanks.

You're kidding, right?!
Install packages (or upgrade maybe), I wished to do that since I was little ...
The only specific it is relevant from what you've asked is IMHO the sys(tem): Debian Sarge. I really do not think the kernel (2.6.5) interferes with the aptitude/apt/dpkg...

"Exit with an error by force in order to stop the installation." - I think it's ok not to install the packages that I've said not to install (the one with bugs), but what about the other packages? If this is the normal behaviour I guess installing should be individual (eg. you can not make an upgrade of a larger part of the system programs (libraries...) at once)...

Anyone using the list-bugs facility? If yes, what do you get if you press n at "Are you sure you want to install/upgrade the above packages? [Y/n/?/...]" ?

For more information just ask...

You can upgrade your packages much easier with
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
I have yet to come past a GUI like thingie that is easier than apt. The only thing I'd want to use a GUI like program for is looking which packages I have installed so I can delete those that I don't use and have forgotten about. Apt isn't that hard, it's really worth the try.

Why do I still think that doing apt-get upgrade would still ask me about bugs?
I have install apt-listbugs on my debian, so as they say:

Code:
apt-listbugs is a tool which retrieves bug reports from the Debian Bug Tracking System and lists them. Especially, it is intended to be invoked before each upgrade/installation by apt in order to check whether the upgrade/installation is safe.   Many developers and users prefer the unstable version of Debian for its new features and packages. apt, the usual upgrade tool, can break your system by installing a buggy package.   apt-listbugs lists critical bug reports from the Debian Bug Tracking System. Run it before apt to see if an upgrade or installation is known to be unsafe
I should run it before installing different packages. And if some of them contain serious bugs, I'll definitely would not like to install them...

Hmm... things are getting blurry.
