Overnight, a script running from cron one of our servers (Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS) applied updates to MySQL. Rather than taking a few minutes to do this, it appears to have taken over an hour and a half, and the databases were still offline at the point one of my colleagues rebooted the server.

What concerns me a little is that it appears to have been trying to apply a an older MySQL update for Ubuntu 12.04.2 and a newer update for Ubuntu 12.04.1 at the same time - is this normal, or do we have a problem with configuration on the server?
