Comment 2 Alois Mahdal 2017-01-19 21:05:30 UTC
Nice catch, +1 from me on this.

Indeed, preupg should not alter your system in any way; its job is solely to scan your system and create an "upgrade package": report plus some files.  You can run the scan as many times as you wish.

    # preupg 
    The Preupgrade Assistant is a diagnostics tool 
    and does not perform the actual upgrade.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
    Gathering logs used by the Preupgrade Assistant:
    All installed packages                                 : 01/10 ...finished (time 00:00s)
    All changed files                                      : 02/10 ...running

The message still appears at the bottom of the report, but at least does not look like it has anything to do with the y/n confirmation.
