Error after updating unbuntu on working erpnext

here is the error despite searching for the distribution (The ‘requests’ distribution was not found and is required by bench) I can not find:

~/frappe-bench$ bench update

Can you run bench update --requirements

If that doesn’t work, just run pip install requests

did that no theres a db issue not sure why:

service mysql status
● mysql.service - LSB: Start and stop the mysql database server daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/mysql; bad; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2016-07-27 11:58:40 EDT; 2min 0s

Odd. Are you not able to restart it either using service mysql restart / start?

we just updated Ubuntu very odd:

Job for mysql.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status mysql.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.
