I haven't installed those MS fonts in ages, but I think if you do it by terminal it should show a menu in the terminal where you can accept the user agreement. You should be able to use <tab> to select yes or agree and then hit <enter>. Where does it get stuck?

at the terminal yes or no agreement. Obviously its a bug, in the apt-get utility, but software boutique will fix it for you in a graphical menu. It's just a warning from me to not install these MS fonts at the command line - use the graphical menus!
