Selecting `System upgrade` in the main console is not interruptible by pressing Ctrl+C because a forked process continues to run in the background printing its output to the console. The next step after interrupting was the output of a GRUB update and other.

Hmmm. We should probably trap SIGINT and DTRT with it. It sounds like only part of the installation gets interrupted, whereas we should either mask it if it's dangerous to do it, or unwind properly.

I forgot to mention - as a halfway experienced python programmer - that signal handling python is overly complex if not terrible - not only because the transmission for different modules, like `subprocess`, `mulitprocessing` and `os`, doesn't seem to be based on the same/a concept, but also because some signals are caught by the interpreter an some not and some are only caught when using one of the named modules and others not.

The real problem is how the exceptions are handled throughout the multiple layers of code, and how a keyboard exception is treated.

I had to special case it in some code, no doubt I've not got it in others.

Then netcli also complicates it, for its own reasons.

This works now. Resolving it for Sef since he doesn't look at his old bugs.

It behaves for you? It's not for me. Hm.

It caught the exception and exited. That's about the most I would have expected?

I think it may depend on when you try.

Or it may have been my own version, which sometimes doesn't match the released version :).
