Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

This was intentional because mecab is in universe in Ubuntu, but the rules in Ubuntu around build dependencies in universe have changed recently. Since in MySQL mecab support is a plugin, we could ship a package with this plugin in universe and only that will depend on libmecab.

Changed in mysql-5.7 (Ubuntu):
milestone: none → ubuntu-16.06

Here is a simple workaround for those might reach here in the future:

1. Add apt repo from Oracle as follow. (or download the config deb from

deb xenial mysql-apt-config
deb xenial mysql-5.7
deb xenial mysql-tools

2. Install MySQL server with `apt-get install mysql-server`.
