What is the history of your installation? Is 0.7.2-9 your initial
installation? The MySQL installation file in 0.7.2-9 says:

CREATE TABLE `cache` (
 `cache_key` varchar(128) /*!40101 CHARACTER SET ascii COLLATE ascii_general_ci */ NOT NULL ,
 `created` datetime NOT NULL DEFAULT '1000-01-01 00:00:00',
 `data` longtext NOT NULL,
 `user_id` int(10) UNSIGNED NOT NULL,
 PRIMARY KEY(`cache_id`),
 CONSTRAINT `user_id_fk_cache` FOREIGN KEY (`user_id`)
 INDEX `created_index` (`created`),
 INDEX `user_cache_index` (`user_id`,`cache_key`)
) /*!40000 ENGINE=INNODB */ /*!40101 CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci */;

Maybe the installation failed with another error and then you retried
and you got this error. Unfortunately, when there is an error during
upgrade, there is no rollback done. You need to recover from backup or
handle things yourself by applying upgrades by hand. They are in

Have a look in /var/log/dbconfig-common/dbc.log to confirm the
error. Also, it will trace your version history in case 0.7.2-9 was not
your first version.
