I am using Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS, I was using MySQL 5.6.24 via (https://launchpad.net/~ondrej/+archive/ubuntu/mysql-5.6) and have just tried to update it but it dies with:

I have run through the following answers:
But I am still no closer to figuring out what is wrong with this other than that it might be something to be with dependencies. I have tried:
dpkg -l | grep mysql ii libdbd-mysql-perl 4.025-1 amd64 Perl5 database interface to the MySQL database ii libmysqlclient18:amd64 5.6.25-3+deb.sury.org~trusty+1 amd64 MySQL database client library ii mysql-client-5.6 5.6.27-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 amd64 MySQL database client binaries ii mysql-client-core-5.6 5.6.27-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 amd64 MySQL database core client binaries ii mysql-common 5.6.25-3+deb.sury.org~trusty+1 all MySQL database common files, e.g. /etc/mysql/my.cnf iF mysql-server-5.6 5.6.27-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 amd64 MySQL database server binaries and system database setup ii mysql-server-core-5.6 5.6.27-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 amd64 MySQL database server binaries rc php5-mysqlnd 5.5.30+dfsg-1+deb.sury.org~trusty+1 amd64 MySQL module for php5 (Native Driver)
Which indicates that mysql-common is a lesser version than the rest of them, not sure if this makes much of a difference here though as on another system it is there but at a higher revision than the rest of them at .24.
Found this that suggests that it may be something to do with the apparmor (had no idea that this could affect things) config but I did not upgrade from 5.5:
Only other option I can see here for me is to try to update to 5.7 and see if that has any change for my problem.
Any additional feedback or suggestions on how I could resolve this would be greatly appreciated as I really have no idea why this is happening now.
