I'm trying to install mysql-server package under Debian using the following command:

apt-get install mysql-server-5.0 mysql-common

But I'm getting an error which read as follows:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
libdevel-symdump-perl liburi-perl libhtml-parser-perl libapr1 libhtml-tree-perl libpq5 libhtml-tagset-perl libwww-perl
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following extra packages will be installed:
libdbd-mysql-perl libmysqlclient15off mysql-client-5.0
Suggested packages:
The following NEW packages will be installed:
libdbd-mysql-perl libmysqlclient15off mysql-client-5.0 mysql-common mysql-server-5.0
0 upgraded, 5 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
E: Archive directory /var/cache/apt/archives/partial is missing.

How do I fix the problem?
