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:

wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-5.5/mysql-5.5.11-linux2.6-i686.tar.gz/from/http://mysql.llarian.net/

I think you have to be logged into mysql.com 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 http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-5.5/mysql-5.5.11-linux2.6-i686.tar.gz/f‌​rom/http://mysql.llarian.net/ –  vinny Jan 27 '12 at 21:56

I'm guessing that you got that link from http://www.ovaistariq.net/490/a-step-by-step-guide-to-upgrading-to-mysql-5-5/? 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 http://www.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/ in your browser, you can get a correct URL to a current version.
