My Java Sir told me to install MySQL-server, workbench, and connector. I did that somehow after spending 30+ hours reading different posts.
After launching Workbench, I went to Tools > Start Shell for MySQL Utilities. Which gave me this popup: https://imgur.com/GQvHKsI
After installing this package, whenever I run: sudo apt update, I get this error:
pranav@inspiron-5548:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade [sudo] password for pranav: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages will be REMOVED: mysql-connector-python 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 1 not fully installed or removed. After this operation, 1,362 kB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y (Reading database ... 216555 files and directories currently installed.)

So, I thought I should uninstall this, and I used sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-connector-python command, but it also didn't work, and it throws me the same error as above.
What to do? I am in limbo here! Since any new development done in "mysql-utilities" is aged back to Jan 17, 2017, I don't think I will be needing this anymore. I did the mistake trying to install old archived deb package. (newbie)
IF u know, how to remove it, what is it, it would be really helpful to tell me about it.
