MySQL fails to start after upgrade to 12.04?

I'm a newbie on MySQL ground so bear with me.

I've just finished upgrading 11.10 to 12.04.

Everything seemed to work without any hiccups and all my software and settings are working fine. Apart from MySQL.

When I try:

sudo start mysql

I receive an error:

start: Job failed to start

Where can I possibly diagnose what the problem is? And (hopefully) - how to sort it out?

(I disabled automatic start following advice here if that is of some importance)
