Cannot update mysql version to 5.7.13



on my local machine, i use Ubuntu 16.04 with mysql 5.7.13, i tried to update my workspace’s mysql for the same version doing sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.7.13 and package is not found

PS: i’m not an advanced ubuntu user


try adding this ppa:
Use this commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/mysql-5.7
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mysql-5.7


i’m sorry for answering late, i was too busy

your method failed at sudo apt-get install mysql-5.7



I was able to install the latest mysql server available for cloud9 ide… the ppa reporitory was fine, but i just had to run one last command which is

$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server
