Question Ubuntu kickstart/preseed issue

I've been using a Ubuntu kickstart and preseed scripts in order to build new machines, however within the last week or so they've been hanging do to issues with the /etc/sudoers file needed to be updated.

Here's where it hangs in from the logs.

Setting up sudo (1.8.9p5-1ubuntu1.3)

Configuration file '/etc/sudeors'
==> Modified by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distibution has shipped an updated version.
What would you like to do about it?

And of course since it's a kickstart/preseed it hangs. I've tried modifying the preseed file and changed d-i pkgsel/upgrade select full-upgrade to d-i pkgsel/upgrade select none but with no luck. Any suggestions would be most helpful! TIA!
