ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

The solution is simple but strange, if you copy your /var/lib/mysql directory to another server and think it will work, be sure to check if you have /var/log/mysql and binary log files.  If you do, the server will not work and will give you errors like below and crash without the proper log files.

UPDATE user SET password=password("newpass") WHERE user='root';
flush privileges;

ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

No connection. Trying to reconnect...

/var/log/mysqld.log output:

As we can see it is crashing and also looking for non-existent logfiles.

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help
diagnose the problem, but since we have already crashed,
something is definitely wrong and this may fail.

key_buffer_size=16384
read_buffer_size=262144
max_used_connections=0
max_threads=151
thread_count=0
connection_count=0
It is possible that mysqld could use up to
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 49909 K  bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

The solution

Make sure you copy /var/log/mysql as well.
