    MySQL 8 installation fail - dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mysql-

    I wasn't able yet to install MySQL 8 in Ubuntu.

    • Distribution : Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS (running on windows using WSL)
    • WSL version : 4.4.0-17134-Microsoft
    • Mysql-server : 8.0.16-2ubuntu18.04 amd64

    I am following these instructions - Steps for a fresh installation of MySQL

    I have tried some suggestions that I found at the internet, based on similar cases, but none of them worked.
    Example 1 : sudo apt -f install -> In order to fix the dependency problem.
    .
    Example 2 : Remove installation -> update distro -> install it again.

    Example 3 : Update post installation script for Msql Community Server, in order to manually edit it and add set -e on 2nd line to ignore any error (basically invoke-rc.d/init fails to restart the mysql service). restart it manually after.

    Well all those options failed.

    After the installation, I run the command to start the mysql server, but the service isn't recognized, so the installation fail.

    Based on my experience, it's very hard to evaluate exactly the root cause of the problem, any suggestion recommendation and suggestion would be really appreciated. I am planning to follow this installation process My SQL Community Server, https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/, where I can select the packages to be installed.

    I found a useful link : https://github.com/Microsoft/WSL/issues/3631, @jw-redpanda put some light in my problem. He mentions a installation problem at MySql 8.0 using WSL in windows. The MySQl doesn´t start. He presents a workaround, well for me I was able to install version 5.7 at least, but I wasn't able to proceed after step 5, when you have the version 8 as candidate. It worked for others, so good luck for you.
