When you say starting over what do you mean?

I will do so tommorow, I have completely removed it,
I will reinstall tommorow.
sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql*
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
I'm having the exact same issue with mysql on 8.04. I don't think there's any sort of permission issue. Mysql starts just fine with: /etc/init.d/mysql start. The run level symlinks (/etc/rc.d) *seem* to be correct, however I'm no guru in this area.
Anyone else know what's going on here?
