(The Need to fix this is gone) Stumped on how to fix MySQL

Postby geekosupremo » 2015-09-23 18:35


While I would like to solve this ... the need for the mySQL server is now gone. So this may remain forever a mystery.


Problem to be solved: MySQL does not start.

What's been done so far: (sudo was applied where appropriate and a few times where it may have been un-needed just in case)
  • apt-get -f
  • apt-get --fix-missing
  • apt-get --purge
  • apt-get --reinstall
  • rebooting
  • /etc/init.d/mysql start
  • dpkg-reconfigure

The output of "apt-get --fix-missing"
Code: Select all
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
mysql-server is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
2 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I can't start it ... I can't reconfigure it ... I can't uninstall it ... I'm at a loss as to what to do next
