Upgrade without stupid questions

when upgrading Ubuntu system to newer version, upgrade tool is sometimes
asking too much stupid questions. If you are not behind the computer,
installation is waiting for your response and time flies.

For instance: System informs you, that screen lock is disabled. I mean,
why the hell you need to click "Close", why installation does not
proceed in the background??

Another example: before old packages are removed (cleaning up phase),
system informs you, they will be removed. Until you click "Remove
packages", it does not go further. This is quite unhandy, because it
requires your permanent attendance near computer.

Sometimes when there is a conflict updating settings, system asks you
what to do, but always there is some default action proposed.

So, is it possible to have a special option (a button) "Don't f** me
with stupid questions, accept all default settings", which will enable
you to perform the upgrade without any questions? I understand this
could be dangerous sometimes, but if someone is willing to accept the
risk, why not?
