Struggling with installing MySQL

Struggling with installing MySQL


I just got Ubuntu 18.04.4 on my new computer and trying to install MySQL on it.

However, once installed it can’t start because of missing file “mysqld.sock”.
It really looks strange to me as it comes just right after completing the installation and nothing seemed to go wrong with it.

Please check the attached screenshots to see what it gives.

Hoping to find a way to fix this problem, I would be very glad to find any good clues.

Thank you,
