Bug Description

I was upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 LTS via console. Mysql server failed to be configured because at one point I was asked to use an account called debian-sys-maint, which I don't remember seeing ever. I tried it by entering the password found in /etc/mysql/debian.cnf with no luck. I also tried using root - no luck. Further into the upgrade, I was offered to submit a report, and follow an url to here.

tjk :)

Adding a task against mythbuntu, it may be invalid - but i felt it was worth raising attention to this.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

According to the log file:

Installing new version of config file /etc/logrotate.d/mysql-server ...

mkdir: cannot create directory `/var/lib/mysql/mysql': No such file or directory

dpkg: error processing mysql-server-5.1 (--configure):

 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mysql-server:

 mysql-server depends on mysql-server-5.1; however:

  Package mysql-server-5.1 is not configured yet.

Does /var/lib/mysql/ exist?

I think I have found the problem with my installation. /var/lib/mysql is a link to a location on an iscsi target. I am fairly certain the iscsi targets were not connected, because eth1, my iscsi interface wasn't brought up. eth1 didn't come up when I rebooted after the upgrade, Now eth1 and iscsi are fine, and I updated mysql successfully.

I'd consider this a non-issue at this point.

Thank you.
