On routine update/upgrade on every VPS I have. Suddenly I get an error and it's only on one server. I get error on MySQL dependencies. I have tried as shown below,but still failed.
I dont want to reinstall the VPS as it's the main server with DNS and many other stuff. It's Debian 6.
Can anyone help me..
