The upgrade is failing due to the presence of a(t least one) table
that should not exist at the reported schema version of 1257. Checking
the relevant source [1] shows that the schema upgrade from 1257 to
1258 creates 2 new tables, so can delete them (but keep that backup

$ mysql -u <username> -p mythconverg

mysql> DROP TABLE IF EXISTS internetcontent;
mysql> DROP TABLE IF EXISTS internetcontentarticles;
mysql> exit;

This should permit this particular schema upgrade to succeed, but
without knowing how far the broken upgrade got it's difficult to say
how much more poking will be required. However, there are no more
table creates/drops in the schema update process.
