If mysql server is installed but not running, upgrade will fail with an error. 
Expected behaviour: If MySQL is not running, the script should launch it.

I have MySQL server installed but I changed the configuration so that it
doesn't run automatically. Whenever there's an upgrade, this fails with
an error as shown below. This is a bug in the packaging/scripts of mysql
server, not in mysql-server itself.

Setting up mysql-server-5.7 (5.7.15-0ubuntu0.16.04.1) ...
