This problem is really strange, I have tried many ways to solve but nothing worked. My last output was:

Had the same issue with mysql-server-5.6 and this solution hs helped me:

launchpad: Bug #392051: [Karmic] logger command not found

Basically, the program logger got messed up;

It can be recreated by reinstalling the package bsdutils:

apt-get --reinstall install bsdutils

or

aptitude reinstall bsdutils

This saved me hours, I had the same issue on Ubuntu 14.04 x64 vps, thanks! –  Arda Sep 26 at 22:33

Your "locales" have not been generated yet, or not properly.

Try this:

sudo locale-gen en_US en_US.UTF-8 pl_PL pl_PL.UTF-8
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

Then try again to install MySQL.
