View Full Version : [kubuntu] Install of mysql failed

June 1st, 2009, 10:16 PM
While installing Mysql had a power glitch and the apt install only partially finished. Tried everything I can think of including removing mysql-server, mysql-server-5.0 and mysql-client-5.0 which apt says removed OK.

install always harts with error massages

Aborting downgrade from (at least) 5.1 to 5.0.
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/mysql-server-5.0_5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu10_i386.deb (--unpack):
subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

All help appreciated
