Bug 1676605 referred to this from comment 18:

> I found some other issues too when I tried reinstalling from scratch - /etc/mysql/my.cnf has the line "!includedir /etc/mysql/conf.d/", but /etc/mysql/conf.d no longer exists if you have purged mysql before reinstalling, so the server won't start up and configuration therefore fails. I had to comment the line out manually to get it to work.

I wondered if there was a bug here, but I couldn't figure out how to reproduce this. Purging mysql-common does drop /etc/mysql/conf.d/, but reinstalling it brings it back. If you can figure out how to reproduce it, please file a separate bug for that.
