    There is no error in the screenshot? – Tero Kilkanen Jun 28 '17 at 10:22

Two things you can try:

# mysql -h localhost 
# mysql -h localhost -u root

To completely remove mysql do:

#  apt-get remove  mysql-server-5.5
  • remove will not remove the mysql server completely. This will not help with troubleshooting either. – Gerald Schneider Jun 29 '17 at 7:59
