  • 15.04 is EOL, you should upgrade to a supported release. – mchid Jun 3 '16 at 8:47

Run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo mkdir /etc/mysql/conf.d
sudo apt-get -f install

Then, I seriously suggest you update your software before doing anything else. Run one of the following commands:

sudo apt-get upgrade

or, recommended:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
