The default for cp is to perform the action.  It won't prompt unless
you have explicitly given cp the 'cp -i' or 'cp --interactive' option.
You must be giving it the 'cp -i' option.  Find where you are doing
that option, stop doing that option, and cp will stop prompting you.

This will help debug:

  type cp
  cp is /bin/cp
