That's the problem. Did you modify the password of the debian-sys-maint
user or the file /etc/mysql/debian.cnf in the past?

Starting mysqld manually and setting a new password for the mentioned
user (which you have to set in /etc/mysql/debian.cnf as well) should fix
this problem.

I'm quite sure it's not related to the security update, something else
much have gone wrong on your system.
