We /think/ this is an issue with MySQL 5.5 (but don't know what's 
causing it, yet).  I'll try to install MySQL 5.5 and do some testing soon.

In the meantime, as a workaround, please install a blank schema, then 
verify that the upgrade works.  There's a 0.21-fixes blank schema (that 
I created and I will vouch for) available at


Please download that file ( mythconverg-1214-blank.sql.gz ) to your home 
directory, then run:

mythconverg_restore.pl --dir=$HOME --file=mythconverg-1214-blank.sql \
                        --drop_database --create_database --verbose

Then start up mythtv-setup to upgrade the database to current 0.24-fixes 
schema.  Please let me know whether the database upgrade works after 
creating the schema.  If so, that should let you get started while I 
work on figuring out what MySQL 5.5 changed.
