For some reason, my Macbook bash terminal is not allowing me to enter "y" from a prompt. I'm not really sure how to describe this, but you can see the action below.

Can you copy y from a different window (maybe together with a newline) and paste it to the terminal? –  choroba Nov 6 '12 at 17:11

Try y^J, or the y key followed by Control-J? –  kbulgrien Nov 6 '12 at 18:27

ctrl-J worked, as did opening a new terminal window.
