NOTE [2019-05-18]: Debian/Ubuntu 5.6.44-85.0-1 packages were replaced today in the repositories with the 5.6.44-85.0-2 because they would reset the root password to an empty string during the upgrade on Debian/Ubuntu (bug #5640). If you upgraded packages on Debian/Ubuntu to the 5.6.44-85.0-1 please upgrade to 5.6.44-85.0-2 and re-set your root password.
