Another technician recently reinstalled our mysql on our LAMP-server and now I can't use mysqldump anymore.
# mysqldump The program 'mysqldump' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: apt-get install mysql-client-5.5
So I do that:
apt-get install mysql-client-5.5 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: percona-server-server-5.5 : Depends: percona-server-client-5.5 (>= 1:5.5.36-rel34.2-648.precise) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
Ok I do that:
apt-get -f install Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Correcting dependencies... Done The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: libterm-readkey-perl mysql-common Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. The following extra packages will be installed: percona-server-client-5.5 The following NEW packages will be installed: percona-server-client-5.5 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 2 not fully installed or removed. Need to get 0 B/8,371 kB of archives. After this operation, 30.7 MB of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
This kinda sounds like it's gonna remove some mysql stuff and install another sort of database, but ok "Y".

Can anyone see what's going on here? Is there maybe a way to manually install mysqldump? Or maybe even another way of making dump-files?
