As I've commented on Matthew's patch to the guide, you may just ask apt
not to ask questions provided by debconf, by prepending
DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive to it. Of course you will need to add
more options in case of an upgrade if you want to get rid of all the
questions, like adding force-confold and force-confdef options to dpkg
but it is up to you.
