I'm trying to install bugzilla3. I previously had mysql-server-5.1 installed, and it gave the following error:
Aborting downgrade from (at least) 5.1 to 5.0. dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/mysql-server-5.0_5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu10.2_i386.deb (--unpack): subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/mysql-server-5.0_5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu10.2_i386.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I went onto the ubuntu irc channel and asked for help where I was told to downgrade mysql to 5.0 and then install bugzilla.
So I went to do this. However when I
sudo apt-get remove mysql-server-5.1
the bugzilla installation configuration begins, and goes until it stops again complaining about the 5.1 -> 5.0 downgrade.
So I went and asked again on the irc and I was told to
sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update
which I did.
It was still happening however so I removed the bugzilla3 package and tried to remove mysql then. And apparently it wasn't there. (I checked mysql-server, mysql-server-5.1 and mysql-server-5.0).
So I went to install bugzilla3 again, and it got as far as last time and complained about mysql-server-5.1 -> 5.0 downgrade. And now apt-get reported it was there, but it won't remove it as it starts the bugzilla install.
How do I fix this?
