Errors were encountered while processing:mysql-server-5.7


Solution :
If you have installed MariaDB and then you have removed it to install mysql. This can be the cause of this issue. If you try to purge all old config filess and set everything up from scratch then it should work. 

Take Back up your important data before doing it.

# sudo apt purge mysql-client-5.7 mysql-client-core-5.7 mysql-common mysql-server-5.7 mysql-server-core-5.7 mysql-server
# sudo apt update 
# sudo apt dist-upgrade && sudo apt autoremove && sudo apt -f install
# sudo apt install mysql-server
