Restore from a DB Backup. You do have backups of the Database?? Look
for a file "mythconverg-xxxx-2012xxxxxxxxx.sql.gz"
I would first try restoring with the update mysql, if that fails, revert
to previous working version of mysql and restore the backup.
For best results (easiest), use mythconverg_restore.pl
