Please excuse any mistakes; this is my first time posting on Stack Exchange.
MySQL throws errors when installing on Ubuntu Bash for Windows and does not install. I have looked at several answers on Stack Exchange and other sites, but what they suggest does not fix my problem.
I have run sudo apt clean, purged MySQL, updated and upgraded, run dkpg --configure -a, and sudo apt install -f. It still throws this error:

I cannot stop the mysqld service. Ubuntu says it is not recognized as a service when I try.
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS: Problem with dependencies installing MySQL 8.0 server did not work either.
