What's wrong with yum install mysql?

It looks like you have missed installing the required RPMs. Please give a try to below steps:

  1. yum install wget
  2. wget https://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch.rpm

  3. md5sum mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch.rpm

  4. rpm -ivh mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch.rpm

  5. yum install mysql-server

Let me know how it goes.
