Does anybody know how to upgrade to this new server? When trying to start it 
it fails with the following log entries:

090325 15:27:28 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from 
090325 15:27:28 [Warning] The syntax '--log_slow_queries' is deprecated and 
will be removed in MySQL 7.0. Please use '--slow_query_log'/'--
slow_query_log_file' instead.
/usr/sbin/mysqld: Table 'mysql.plugin' doesn't exist
090325 15:27:28 [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table. Please run 
mysql_upgrade to create it.
090325 15:27:28 [ERROR] /usr/sbin/mysqld: unknown option '--skip-innodb'
090325 15:27:28 [ERROR] Aborting

090325 15:27:28 [Note] /usr/sbin/mysqld: Shutdown complete

090325 15:27:28 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /var/lib/mysql/opteron.pid 

So, I tried 

sudo mysql_upgrade
Looking for 'mysql' as: mysql
Looking for 'mysqlcheck' as: mysqlcheck
Running 'mysqlcheck'...
mysqlcheck: Got error: 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through 
socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) when trying to connect
FATAL ERROR: Upgrade failed

Does this mean I cannot start mysql until I had run mysql_upgrade? And 
mysql_upgrade does only work when the server is running?
