Some days ago I had some problems with updates, and this ended up with a problem that I already solved in this question . The problem is that now I want to update again, but it seems that I cannot do it automatically, because when I use the update manager it gets stuck while configuring mysql-server 5.1, in the line :

Configuring mysql-server 5.1 (5.1.41-3ubuntu12.10)...

I have been looking for some solution but it seems hard because actually I don't know where to start, so any hints are appreciated. Thanks in advance!



Run mysql-server-5.1 config script from console:

# sudo /var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-server-5.1.config
# echo $?

If the problem persists, then add line in /var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-server-5.1.config

#!/bin/bash -e

set -x

. /usr/share/debconf/confmodule

And run /var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-server-5.1.config. Output add to question.
