Is this a squeeze system? -Then you should make sure you have
security.debian.org in your sources.list. The current version from s.d.o
is 5.1.61-0+squeeze1.

You may want to post the output of 'apt-cache policy'.

aptitude why-not mysql-common

apt-get and aptitude both use the same package database. Running the
'udpate' for both of them is not required.

What's still separated, AFAIK, is the 'hold' mechanism. Bonno, you could
try 'aptitude unhold mysql-common' and see whether aptitude wants to
upgrade now.

I wish I could achieve a 'just stepped out of the salon' look more
often. Or at least once.
