View Full Version : [ubuntu] mysql issues

Whenever I attempt to run updates on my system, I get the following error.

desktop:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done

No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure.

I can't seem to find a fix to this so I was looking for either some guidance on this, or a way to remove mysql so I can try this all over again.

Still haven't come up with any fixes to this issue

Try in a terminal:

sudo apt-get -f install

the above command will install any missing dependencies.
