Apparently mysql did not fully upgrade after moving from ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10.
I was able to fix the issue by selecting mysql-client-5.1 over mysql-client-5.0 (which it was stuck at after the install) for install. In addition, I had to add mysql-server-5.1. mysql-server-core-5.1 was already there so I assume rest of the server never over after the upgrade.
