I also found many complaints (including an Ubuntu bug report --
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/bacula/+bug/65784 ), but no
solutions. If you want to use apt-get to install it, you will probably
have to temporarily remove the root password in MySQL. Otherwise you
will have to build from source.
Once you have it installed, you can set the mysql password in bacula.conf.
