Dear Sir or Madam,

First of all my system information.
I'm running two computers with Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, one has a graphical desktop and the other not.
Both are servers.

I have done the following on both computers:
A long time ago I have installed the MySQL APT Repository and everything worked fine since then, but when I did a apt update command and upgrade command it freezes, it literary hangs and there is nothing I could do.

I did the following commands:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

See here under the output:

The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 18.3 kB of archives.
After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y

Fetched 18.3 kB in 0s (307 kB/s)

Unpacking mysql-apt-config (0.3.3-1ubuntu14.04) over (0.3.2-1ubuntu14.04) ...
Setting up mysql-apt-config (0.3.3-1ubuntu14.04) ...

After this there is no way turning back!
I already crashed one server :(
Please fix this, because this is a severe bug, I'm using MySQL 5.6 a stable version I suppose. 

How to repeat:
If you use the MySQL APT Repository for Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
and do the command: apt-get update

And after update the following command: apt-get upgrade

Suggested fix:
I don't know, I'm just a junior web developer who is able to setup my own servers, with a LAMP stack.
