Mysql errors after update?

Post by Voltron6000 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 3:18 pm

I've been running 0.29 for quite some time now and tried to do an "apt update" this morning. It's been about a year since my last "apt update" :)

Is there anything special I have to do to update to the most recent version of 0.29? I get the following error after update and then when I try to start the backend, the backend complains that it can't connect to the database :(
errors were encountered while processing mysql-server-5.7 mysql-server
Thanks!

What operating system ?

Assuming a version of ubuntu

For "errors were encountered while processing mysql-server-5.7 mysql-server" have a look at end of dpkg.log in /var/log it might give some hints as to what is wrong.

What is the result of sudo apt update ?

Also have a look at mysql log files (/var/log/mysql), the error.log in particular.

The normal way to update to latest version of 29 (the version in Ubuntu repository is usually out of date) is in a terminal session:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/0.29
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt upgrade (or sudo apt dist-upgrade if going to next version of mythtv)

Thanks for your response Mike. I went to a backup disk image from before the updated and then re-did the "apt update" today. This time there were no issues with mysql :) I suspect this was something transient with the repository.

Thanks anyways!
