I have an Ubuntu 18 LTS host which I want to upgrade via ansible and force
apt-get dist-upgrade to install any new configurations available overwriting any existing ones, as if I was there pressing the first option of that dialog:
I’m looking into the ansible apt_module documentation and cannot get this to work. In all cases my touched configurations are maintained, and the new vendor ones are stored in
So far I’ve tried:
# 1: ansible -i my-hosts foo -m apt -a 'update_cache=yes upgrade=safe dpkg_options=force-confnew' # 2: ansible -i my-hosts foo -m apt -a 'force_apt_get=yes update_cache=yes upgrade=safe dpkg_options=force-confnew' # 3: ansible -i my-hosts foo -m apt -a 'force_apt_get=yes update_cache=yes upgrade=dist dpkg_options=force-confnew'
FYI I reproduce this locally with VirtualBox snapshots where I revert after every test.
