During updating/upgrading a fresh Moebius installation on a RaspberryPi with
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
it brought this question:
Configuration file `/etc/issue'
 ==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
 ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : start a shell to examine the situation
 The default action is to keep your current version.
*** issue (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? 
The default hint not to do that is mainly for longer running installations to avoid an overwriting of existing configuration files. In case of a fresh installation you should confirm with "Y".

We buy them, we plug them in, we configure them,. Most packages rely on dpkg to properly install configuration files. Dpkg keeps a checksum of the last installed version of configuration file. http://goatripsindia.com/goa-honeymoon-package
