Ubuntu: Installing mysql-server-5.6 fails on a strange error


still quite a newbie with Linux.

So, I had mysql 5.5 now tried to upgrade to 5.6 (made all the back ups no worries guys :D) tried all what was suggested on askubuntu also stackoverflow stills stuck with an error none I saw running into.

mysql-server-5.6 : Depends: mysql-common (>= 5.6.22-1~) but 5.5.55-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 is to be installed  

I honestly have no idea what's causing this, any help would be massively apperciated.


Use these steps:

  1. Backup your stuff IMPORTANT:

    sudo -i mysqldump --lock-all-tables --all-databases --events --ignore-table=mysql.event > dump.sql  
  2. Then use the steps below, one command at a time

    sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysqld /etc/apparmor.d/disable      sudo invoke-rc.d apparmor restart      sudo replace log_slow_queries slow_query_log_file -- /etc/mysql/conf.d/mysqld_slow_log.cnf      sudo bash -c 'echo "slow_query_log = 1" >> /etc/mysql/conf.d/mysqld_slow_log.cnf'      sudo apt-get purge --assume-yes mysql-server mysql-server-5.5 mysql-server-core-5.5 mysql-client mysql-client-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5      sudo apt-get update      export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive      sudo -E apt-get install --assume-yes mysql-server-5.6 mysql-client-5.6  
  3. Restore:

    mysql -u root -p < dump.sql
