I am trying to uninstall MySQL completely from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS,but I am facing an issue saying:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mariadb-client-10.0 : Depends: libdbd-mysql-perl (>= 1.2202) but it is not going to be installed
mariadb-client-core-10.0 : Depends: mariadb-common (>= 10.0.24-7) but it is not going to be installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
I tried also to uninstall Mariadb but I have always the same problem. Any idea !!
I finally uninstall mysql completely and reinstall it using these lines
Remove all files related to MySQL
sudo apt-get purge mysql* sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get autoclean
Then upgrade my distribution
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Then install MySQL
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
