Ubuntu – How to reject an EULA when installing packages with apt

aptcommand lineinstallationlicense

I wanted to install ubuntu-restricted-extras with apt, but they include ttf-mscorefonts-installer, for which I must accept an EULA license. I don’t want to, but I can't find a way to reject it. There is an 'OK' button but no 'Reject'.

I have tried CtrlC, Q, Esc, but it only makes the installer blink and show the license again.

Closing the terminal or killing the process is not an option because the file lock doesn't get freed.

You need to hit OK, then it will present you another screen asking if you accept the EULA. This second screen takes a Yes/No response.
