So you see, it's a problem of thought. The UI message *is* very clear.

One simply needs to think before acting.

the message is clear.

The user answers that he wants to install.

As I understand this threat, the message is misleading in this case.

It's not.

I noticed this many times with the installer. A person who knows the installer, can give the proper answer. A normal user will answer the question as he understands it using plain English.

What's the difference between a proper answer and an answer from someone who "understands it using plain English?"

Do you want to skip the package?


Precisely. That's why the question was asked.

Thank you very much.
