I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04. Unfortunately I need to work MySQL 5.5 or 5.6. I tried many solutions to have MySQL 5.5 or 5.6 run on Ubuntu 16.04 like this Install MySql 5.6 on Ubuntu 16.04 .
But none of them is working.
Ubuntu detect the unmet dependencies but says "but it is not going to be installed" for 5.5 or says Package 'mysql-server-5.6' has no installation candidate…
Is it not possible to force an earlier version of MySQL on Ubuntu? Why is that?
