    Errors were encountered while processing: 
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    Now mysql is stopped and even command /etc/init.d/mysql start not working.

    serveris:~# /etc/init.d/mysql start 
    I need to correct it as faster as i can

    Thanks in advice

    try apt-get -f install mysql5

    -f = force and it usually will fix package install problems. but hopefully you backed up mysql first
