node ssh2 shell unable to run apt-get install on remote machine

I'm doing a program in node.js to deploy my code from git to a server (Digital Ocean). I'm connecting to the server via ssh2 module and running commands via shell, like bellow:

var Client = require('ssh2').Client; var conn = new Client(); conn.on('ready', function() { console.log('Client :: ready');, stream) { if (err) throw err; stream.on('close', function() { console.log('Stream :: close'); conn.end(); }).on('data', function(data) { console.log('STDOUT: ' + data); }).stderr.on('data', function(data) { console.log('STDERR: ' + data); }); stream.end('sudo apt-get update -y\nsudo apt-get install -y build-essential\nexit\n'); }); }).connect({ host: 'x.x.x.x', port: 22, username: 'yyy', privateKey: 'zzz' });

The command "apt-get update" works fine, but the command "apt-get install build-essential" (I have tried to install other programs, like vim and curl) seems to freeze the stream on output's last line. I think it can be caused by the prompt "Y/n" of the apt-get, but I couldn't find a workaround for it. Someone know how to deal with it?

-------------Problems Reply------------

Try to change \nwith &&:

stream.end('sudo apt-get update -y && sudo apt-get install -y build-essential && exit');
