On Ubuntu 12.04. This is a very old utility AWS server that has always run reliably. Today I notice that MySQL isn't running. I did a reboot just to be "clean". When I try and issue:
/etc/init.d/mysql start >/dev/null 2>&1 &
Not sure what this means. I notice that there is a pending software update for
w3m and so I use
apt-get -y install w3m ..

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: mysql-server-5.5 : Depends: mysql-server-core-5.5 (= 5.5.46-0ubuntu0.12.04.2) but 5.5.54-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 is to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
I've tried googling this issue and these results but see no solutions. I've checked the MySQL error logs, and they are all zero bytes.
