every time I try to install mysql-workbentch on terminal using the sudo apt install mysql-workbentch command, the following error occurs:

$ sudo apt install mysql-workbench-community

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

I am a little new to the ubunto and this problem has already taken a lot of my time, and many unsuccessful attempts. Whoever can help me, I will be forever grateful.

  • Can you update your question to include the output of sudo apt list mysql* --installed? This will make it possible to identify if you're installing the wrong version of MySQL Workbench for your system.

  • When running the code, nothing happens: $ sudo apt list mysql* --installed result: Listing... Done Feb 9, 2021 at 15:03
  • That's going to require a bit of work to fix. If you're using Ubuntu Desktop, perhaps you'd prefer the snap version of MySQL Workbench, as this will give you everything you need without having to worry about C libraries ...

  • I appreciate the help, but the problem goes beyond that. so I chose to use an alternative similar to the workbench. Feb 10, 2021 at 1:40
