My MySQL/MariaDB installation got corrupted, and I'm trying to remove and reinstall via
apt-get Unfortunately, I'm having a major issue with apt-get freezing after stopping the mariadb server.
This is the output I'm getting
jason@asus:~$ sudo apt-get install mariadb-server-core-10.0 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required: mariadb-server-10.0 Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

After that last line, apt-get freezes with no progress over 10 minutes.
