I am trying to upgrade MySQL 5.1 to 5.5.11 on Ubuntu 10.10. Everytime I try the wget command I get this error:

Connecting to||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not found

I think you have to be logged into to download binaries so wget might fail. Have you tried using you OS's package manager? Something like an apt-get *name_of_app* ... ? – KM. Jan 27 '12 at 21:40
apt-get gives me an error E: Invalid operation‌​rom/ – vinny Jan 27 '12 at 21:56

I'm guessing that you got that link from At any rate, MySQL is up to 5.5.20 now and I don't think they offer older versions of 5.5.x. If you want an older GA release, you'd have to download 5.1.61.

If you visit in your browser, you can get a correct URL to a current version.
