    I wish to upgrade to MySQl 5. Selected MySQL5.0 under WHM| Server Config | Tweak Settings. When I run /scripts/mysqlup (or WHM | Software | Update Srver Software) this is what I get:

    If you encounter this again, please submit a ticket marked "Attn: JD". Forcing the install this way shouldn't be necessary. It would be good it identify exactly what's failing with the preinstall script and to get it corrected.

    [SOLVED] really :)

    For future reference, in case anybody has a similar problem. Turns out that /var/tmp was mounted in a way that made it unusable.

    vzfs on /var/tmp type vzfs (rw,nosuid,noexec)

    Unmounting /var/tmp before running /scripts/mysqlup fixed the problem described in OP.

    Special thanks go to J.D. for the help, diagnosis and solution.
