    [ubuntu] error in installing mysql 8 on ubuntu 18.04

    I am trying to install Mysql 8 on my ubuntu 18.04. I uninstalled every previous Mysql installations and make sure there is nothing related to sql on my mchine by executing
    $ sudo dpkg -l | grep mysql
    Next, to install Mysql I issued following commands
      $ sudo wget
    $ sudo dpkg -i mysql-apt-config_0.8.15-1_all.deb
    $ sudo apt-get update
    all work fine till here, but when I issue this

    $ sudo apt-get install mysql-server
    I am getting this error. I tried this on two different ubuntu machines and I am getting same error. Can someone guide what mistake I am doing?

        dpkg: error processing package mysql-community-server (--configure):
     installed mysql-community-server package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mysql-server:
     mysql-server depends on mysql-community-server (= 8.0.19-1ubuntu18.04); however:
      Package mysql-community-server is not configured yet.
    dpkg: error processing package mysql-server (--configure):
