What is the output of these commands?

  env COLUMNS=80 dpkg -l | grep mysql-server

Should say:

  ii  mysql-server   5.5.31+dfsg- all      MySQL database server (metapackag
  ii  mysql-server-5 5.5.31+dfsg- amd64    MySQL database server binaries an
  ii  mysql-server-c 5.5.31+dfsg- amd64    MySQL database server binaries

This one needs root:

  service mysql restart

Should say:

  Stopping MySQL database server: mysqld.
  Starting MySQL database server: mysqld ..
  Checking for tables which need an upgrade, are corrupt or were 
  not closed cleanly..
