MySQL 5.5 is now in [extra]. This is a major version upgrade from the 5.1
editions previously in the repositories. Archive, Blackhole, and Federated
engine support are no longer included in this package, since they are not
heavily used.

After upgrading the MySQL package and restarting the database, you will need to
run `mysql_upgrade` to ensure your tables, views and stored procedures are up to
date and compatible with MySQL 5.5.

It is always good to do a backup of your databases before doing the update. You
will also need to adjust my.cnf options in order to make it compatible with 5.5
release; more information is [available here][1].
