       dpkg-reconfigure - reconfigure an already installed package

        dpkg-reconfigure [options] packages

       dpkg-reconfigure reconfigures packages after they have already been installed. Pass it the names of a package or packages to
       reconfigure. It will ask configuration questions, much like when the package was first installed.

       If you just want to see the current configuration of a package, see debconf-show(1) instead.

       -ftype, --frontend=type
           Select the frontend to use. The default frontend can be permanently changed by:

            dpkg-reconfigure debconf

           Note that if you normally have debconf set to use the noninteractive frontend, dpkg-reconfigure will use the dialog
           frontend instead, so you actually get to reconfigure the package.

       -pvalue, --priority=value
           Specify the minimum priority of question that will be displayed.  dpkg-reconfigure normally shows low priority questions
           no matter what your default priority is. See debconf(7) for a list.

           Enables terse output mode. This affects only some frontends.

           Use whatever the default priority of question is, instead of forcing the priority to low.

       -u, --unseen-only
           By default, all questions are shown, even if they have already been answered. If this parameter is set though, only
           questions that have not yet been seen will be asked.

           Force dpkg-reconfigure to reconfigure a package even if the package is in an inconsistent or broken state. Use with

           Prevent dpkg-reconfigure from reloading templates. Use with caution; this will prevent dpkg-reconfigure from repairing
           broken templates databases.  However, it may be useful in constrained environments where rewriting the templates
           database is expensive.

       -h, --help
           Display usage help.
