The duplicate of this bug, #338387, says that version 1.2.3 of the python-mysqldb package will be out in March. It's now June, 3 months later, and I still have 1.2.2-7ubuntu1 installed. When will I get the updated, fixed version of this package?

At the time of this writing, the Ubuntu package is still out of date, so it's still broken. To work around this, install MySQLdb using easy_install.

Here is what I did:

apt-get remove python-mysqldb # Remove outdated version
apt-get install python-setuptools # This package has easy_install, the tool you'll use to reinstall MySQLdb
### This might fail if you don't have some essentials. See below.
easy_install MySQL-python

### If you got an error about missing mysql_config, you'll need to install that. It's in libmysqlclient-dev
sudo aptitude search libmysqlclient # See what version of you are using. Assuming its 15, then do...
apt-get install libmysqlclient15-dev # Building MySQLdb will require mysql_config, in this package.
apt-get install python-dev # It'll also need Python.h and some other stuff in here
### If you have a really fresh system, you'll need all the regular build tools. Just for kicks, load up on these:
apt-get install binutils-doc gcc-multilib make manpages-dev autoconf automake1.9 libtool
# Now, this BETTER work
easy_install MySQL-python

Hello July! Still waiting on the new version of python-mysqldb, which would prevent my server from emailing me every day...

Walter Huf, in the mean time, you can add this to /var/lib/python-support/python2.6/MySQLdb/ (put it somewhere at the top):

import warnings
warnings.filterwarnings("ignore", message="the sets module is deprecated")

Or you could add it to the project that's mailing you every day.

I hacked the sets module itself to not throw the exception at all.
