OK, good news. I've duplicated your problem with the
same error messages and no response after sudo start

Go to /etc/apparmor.d and look at the file:


I suspect you'll see lines like:

   /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid w,
   /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock w,

On my 11.10 system, they look like:

   /{,var/}run/mysqld/mysqld.pid w,
   /{,var/}run/mysqld/mysqld.sock w,

Because now /run exists along with /var/run.

You may also see the same file name with .dpkg
at the end of it (or something like it.)

I'm /guessing/ that when you upgraded, you were
asked if you wanted to install the new file and
you answered no.
