how to automate the question ( we need to set it as always yes )

You can use "expect" utility offered by Linux as following:
1. Install that package:

# yum install expect -y 


2. Create a file as following as "/tmp/test.sh"

#!/usr/bin/expect 
set timeout 20
spawn /usr/sbin/ambari-server upgrade
expect "Ambari Server configured for Postgres. Confirm you have made a backup of the Ambari Server database" { send "y\n" }
interact

Notice i am passing "y". here { send "y\n" } which means it will take my input as "yes"


3. Give execute permission to the script and then run it

# chmod 755 /tmp/test.sh
# /tmp/test.sh

OUTPUT:
---------

# /tmp/test.sh 
spawn /usr/sbin/ambari-server upgrade
