Did you switch terminals in between or reset it? Those should not be related, it sounds more like a terminal screwup. Like, sometimes, at least in gnome-terminal, it reaches a point where readline and friends fail for some reason.

But I wanted to report to be sure this isn't missed. I happened to do an apt upgrade like this: $ sudo apt upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages will be upgraded: irqbalance libcaca-dev libcaca0 libmysqlclient20 libvirt-clients libvirt-daemon libvirt-daemon-driver-storage-rbd libvirt-daemon-system libvirt0 psmisc qemu qemu-block-extra qemu-kvm qemu-system qemu-system-arm qemu-system-common qemu-system-data qemu-system-gui qemu-system-mips qemu-system-misc qemu-system-ppc qemu-system-s390x qemu-system-sparc qemu-system-x86 qemu-user-static qemu-utils snapd ubuntu-core-launcher ubuntu-snappy ubuntu-snappy-cli 30 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 82,8 MB of archives. After this operation, 6.298 kB of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Abort. The "bug" now is that thie "Abort" at the end was not my decision. It directly went to that. dist-upgrade did the same. I was puzzled at first, did an `apt update` to be sure but the problem continued to trigger. One thing that I found was that on update I saw a message like this: E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/ci-train-ppa-service/3520/ubuntu cosmic Release' no longer has a Release file. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details. That is correct this PPA was deleted a while ago, but that should not kill the upgrade right? I removed the files, updated and now things are working fine: $ sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ci-train-ppa-service-ubuntu-3520-cosmic.list* $ sudo apt update [...] $ sudo apt upgrade (now working) This might be an intentional protection against "lost repos" but then there should be a better message? I'll file it as low prio, let me know what you think.
