    Blindly following youtube videos in not always the best route to go, especially when the authors of the videos do not know what they are doing.

    yes, you're right.
    but now I really don't know what's should I do
    I run this
    Code:
    apt install mysql-server
    I get this
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     mysql-server : Depends: mysql-server-5.5 but it is not going to be installed

    then I run this
    Code:
    apt install mysql-server-5.5
    I get this

    then I run this

    apt install mysql-common
    I get this

    mysql-common is already the newest version (5.8+1.0.3).
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    then I run this
    Code:
    apt install mysql-client-5.5
    I get this
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree

    mysql-client-5.5 is already the newest version (5.5.43-0+deb8u1).

    I've been really confused
    What's wrong?
    thanks

    Wow, messy! Can you show the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list ? Also, show the output of the command "uname -a".
