Public bug reported:

On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (xenial), I've found that libmysqlclient20 depends on 
mysql-common (>= 5.5)

apt-cache show libmysqlclient20 | grep Depends
Depends: mysql-common (>= 5.5), libc6 (>= 2.14), libgcc1 (>= 1:3.0), libstdc++6 
(>= 4.1.1), zlib1g (>= 1:1.1.4)

Can you please change this to simply "mysql-common"  instead of the
versioned one?

As this now makes impossible for example to install the Codership Galera
packages from ( deb xenial main
) together with the libdbd-mysql-perl .

Now I get this:

root@node1:~# apt-get install mysql-wsrep-5.6 libdbd-mysql-perl

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

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libdbd-mysql-perl : Depends: libmysqlclient20 (>= 5.7.11) but it is not going 
to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

PS: Btw I've filed an issue to Codership too, maybe there is a way to solve 
this there:
