That sounds like a corruption in MySQL. Have you tried googling for
the error code/description?

You'll find the short version here:

And the long version is in the INSTALL.* files that are part of the Koha code:

Here is the relevant part of INSTALL.debian, for example:

If you are upgrading from a previous installation of Koha 3.x, you can
use the following:

 ./koha_perl_deps.pl -u -m # to identify new Perl dependencies

Install any missing modules
IMPORTANT: Koha 3.4.x uses Template::Toolkit, this must be installed
before the webinstaller can run

 sudo apt-get install libtemplate-perl

 perl Makefile.PL --prev-install-log /path/to/koha-install-log
 make test
 sudo make upgrade

Koha 3.4.x no longer stores items in biblio records so as part of the
upgrade you will need to do the following two steps, they can take a
long time (several hours) to complete for large databases

 misc/maintenance/remove_items_from_biblioitems.pl --run
 misc/migration_tools/rebuild_zebra.pl -b -r
