I have followed these instructions to apply the above patch - http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/release-notes/tech_bull_207-upgrade.html and on the bottom it instructs to execute the command

cp -R magento2-updater-10.0.2/* update/

which copies files from one directory to the other. However, I received over 50 prompts asking me if I want to overwrite the current file. In future, what command do I use so it overwrites all the files?


Short answer:

try this:

yes | cp -rf magento2-updater-10.0.2/* update/ 


This is probably caused by cp being already aliased to something like cp -i. Calling cp directly should work:

/bin/cp -rf magento2-updater-10.0.2/* update/ 

You can check existing aliases by running alias at the command prompt, or which cp to check aliases only for cp.

If you do have an alias defined, running unalias cp will abolish that for the current session, otherwise you can just remove it from your shell profile.

You can temporarily bypass an alias and use the non-aliased version of a command by prefixing it with \, e.g. \cp whatever
