自動セキュリティ更新でmysqlのインストールが壊れ、修正方法がわかりません。私の知る限り、パッケージmysql-client-core-5.5とmysql-clientは同じversio0n 5.5.31にあります。ただしコアでは、クライアントを古いバージョンのままにする必要があります。

apt-get upgrade

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 mysql-client-core-5.5 : Breaks: mysql-client (< 5.5.31-0ubuntu0.12.04.1)
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

apt-show-versions -a mysql-client

mysql-client/precise-security upgradeable from 5.5.29-0ubuntu0.12.04.2 to 5.5.31-0ubuntu0.12.04.1

apt-show-versions -a mysql-client-core-5.5

apt-get -f install

there is a MySQL

5.5.31-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 and


sudo apt-show-versions -a mysql-client
Not installed
mysql-client 5.5.22-0ubuntu1         precise

mysql-client 5.5.31-0ubuntu0.12.04.2 precise-updates
mysql-client not installed

I had trouble with the install (server components) due to missing libterm-readkey-perl. maybe you face something similar.
