You can use apt-cache policy mysql-server and see which versions are available depending on repo you’ve configured at /etc/apt/sources.list then copy version number to install if that is available like

apt-get install mysql-server=5.6.29

(Use sudo if not root) I don’t actually recommend this as it might break things if you’re using mysql with php, phpmyadmin etc
