I have an error with either installing apps through Software Center or apt-get.
I have installed xampp which at first didn't worked. The mysql service didn't want to start or stop. I then uninstalled xampp, tried to install mysql server and a client from Software Center. It didn't complete (install errors). I then removed them, restarted and reinstalled xampp. This time it worked (that is my sql, php etc).

Setting up mysql-server-5.5 (5.5.24-0ubuntu0.12.04.1) ...
start: Job failed to start
invoke-rc.d: initscript mysql, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing mysql-server-5.5 (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
However, since then, whenever I install an app, either through the Software Center or apt-get, I get an error that a previous package was not installed fully and the installed app is not available.
How can I fix this error and starting using my apps?
