Upgrading MySQL on Debian Wheezy Fails

I just did an update to one of my Debian Wheezy servers. After the upgrade Mysql failed to start. That sucked, but fortunately I was able to fix it.

All I needed to do was comment out a line from /etc/mysql/my.cnf.dpkg-dist.

If you run into the issue, the problem is related to this line in my.cnf.dpkg-dist file.

lc-messages-dir        = /usr/share/mysql

I commented that line out and the Mysql server fired right up.
