=================================
I expect to install mysql on ubuntu. I had no error before. Now I get this error, that there was a previous failure. But there was not.

======================

I would appreciate some help, if possbile. I know that you are all really busy. I guess I could also reinstall Ubuntu, etc. Thank you.
