    Question MySQL packages cannot be installed because of unmet dependencies - Ubuntu 12.04

    Please find three screenshots attached.
    The update was an automatic one, which I cannot install because of 'unmet dependencies'.
    MySQL is running fine. I'm just curious and want to fix it so that I don't encounter a problem later on.

    Here's the explanation in the terminal:

    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mysql-server-5.5:
    mysql-server-5.5 depends on mysql-server-core-5.5 (= 5.5.29-0ubuntu0.12.04.1); however:
    Version of mysql-server-core-5.5 on system is 5.5.29-0ubuntu0.12.04.2.
    dpkg: error processing mysql-server-5.5 (--configure):


    Please help, newbie.
    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I've been using Ubuntu for years. For this problem, usually sudo apt-get install -f in the terminal will solve this problem.

    Let me know if it worked.

    Hmmm, I've done some searching and it seems that this happens quite a bit to people. The strange thing is that there doesn't seem to be a singular fix. :/ However, the following may work:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -r mysql-server-5.5 
    sudo dpkg -r  mysql-server-core-5.5
    This should unmark it for installation. Then:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
