smartmontools install -- stuck


Hello,

I'd like to install smartmontools on my Ubuntu 18.04 system. When I execute sudo apt install smartmontools I get screen headed "Postfix Configuration."

This lists configuration options, but doesn't give a clue how to select them. So I'm stuck.

How can I get past this unfortunate road block?

Thanks,

LRP

Code:
sudo apt install --no-install-recommends smartmontools
