I'm on Debian 8 (stable) (Linux zenbook 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1 (2015-05-24) x86_64 GNU/Linux) and tried to
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade yesterday. There was an upgrade for
5.5.44-0+deb8u1, with which
apt-get is having problems since then. The program hangs on
Setting up mysql-server-5.5.
I then tried to purge the package and install it again, but with the same result. I don't know what else I can try. Suggestions?
