WordPress database error: [MySQL server has gone away]

  • Today, for the first time, when trying to upgrade plugins, I am receiving the following message(s).

    Problem is, the mysql db is intact and functioning. I was able to optimize and repair the db successfully using the wp-db plugin I have.

    ‘WordPress database error: [MySQL server has gone away]
    UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = ‘a:29:{i:0;s:43:\”advertising-manager/advertising-manager.php\”;i:1;s:19:\”akismet/akismet.php\”;i:2;s:43:\”all-in-one-seo-pack/all_in_one_seo_pack.php\”;i:3;s:33:\”automatic-newsletter/autonews.php\”;i:4;s:26:\”azindex/az-index-admin.php\”;i:5;s:35:\”comment-license/comment-license.php\”;i:6;s:40:\”download-monitor/wp-download_monitor.php\”;i:7;s:34:\”feedburner-plugin/fdfeedburner.php\”;i:8;s:21:\”geopress/geopress.php\”;i:9;s:43:\”google-ajax-translation/ajaxtranslation.php\”;i:10;s:36:\”google-sitemap-generator/sitemap.php\”;i:11;s:29:\”inlinks-ad-plugin/inlinks.php\”;i:12;s:37:\”maintenance-mode/maintenance-mode.php\”;i:13;s:37:\”paypal-donations/paypal-donations.php\”;i:14;s:35:\”search-and-share/SearchAndShare.php\”;i:15;s:31:\”selective-rss/selective_rss.php\”;i:16;s:32:\”sexybookmarks/sexy-bookmarks.php\”;i:17;s:39:\”si-captcha-for-wordpress/si-captcha.php\”;i:18;s:35:\”si-contact-form/si-contact-form.php\”;i:19;s:30:\”smart-youtube/smartyoutube.php\”;i:20;s:15:\”stats/stats.php\”;i:21;s:47:\”subscribe-here-widget/subscribe-here-widget.php\”;i:22;s:29:\”visitor-maps/visitor-maps.php\”;i:23;s:17:\”wp-ban/wp-ban.php\”;i:24;s:29:\”wp-dbmanager/wp-dbmanager.php\”;i:25;s:30:\”wp-denyhost/ps_wp_denyhost.php\”;i:26;s:23:\”wp-events/wp-events.php\”;i:27;s:21:\”wp-polls/wp-polls.php\”;i:28;s:42:\”yet-another-related-posts-plugin/yarpp.php\”;}’ WHERE option_name = ‘active_plugins”

    Also, using the auto upgrade function, it returns
    ‘WordPress database error: [MySQL server has gone away]
    SELECT autoload FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = ‘_transient_update_plugins”

    However, in the end, everything seems to just “work”

    Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-email.2.51.zip.

    Unpacking the update.

    Installing the latest version.

    Deactivating the plugin.

    INSERT ERROR CODE HERE

    Removing the old version of the plugin.

    Plugin upgraded successfully.

    Attempting reactivation of the plugin

    Plugin reactivated successfully.

    Anyone else encountered this, and is there a solution?
