I read a lot about the issues here with mysql server and client 5.6 on ubuntu 14.04 and tried all the things but I cannot get it to work.
Following steps I already took
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-server mysql-client mysql-common sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get autoclean sudo rm -rf /var/lib/mysql sudo rm -rf /etc/mysql sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.6
error from installation
Setting up mysql-common (5.6.25-3+deb.sury.org~trusty+1) ... update-alternatives: error: alternative path /etc/mysql/my.cnf.fallback doesn't exist dpkg: error processing package mysql-common (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 Errors were encountered while processing: mysql-common E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Can anyone help here? thanks a lot
