I have some trouble on installing mysql 5.7 on ubuntu 22.04

I follow this steps https://computingforgeeks.com/how-to-install-mysql-on-ubuntu-focal/

I checked that I have followed correctly, but on the steps to search for MySQL 5.7 using apt-cache command below

sudo apt-cache policy mysql-server

I get below result, which is missing the 5.7 mysql version

apt-cache policy mysql-server

I tried to reconfigure by using this command below

sudo dpkg-reconfigure mysql-apt-config

In which I select this first selection

first selection

then I select this second selection

second selection

then I select okay

select ok

but open check again using
apt-cache policy mysql-server

it's still same missing mysql 5.7

Notice the error

Warning: apt-key should not be used in scripts (called from postinst maintainerscript of the package mysql-apt-config)
Warning: apt-key is deprecated. Manage keyring files in trusted.gpg.d instead (see apt-key(8)).

I have also try running mysql purge as below

sudo apt-get purge mysql-apt-config

then reinstall the apt repository but the mysql 5.7 list still not appear

missing mysql 5.7

I found many solution posted are related to people had problem like this with mysql 8.0 installation but I am unable to found someone that had problem like this one I asked related to mysql 5.7 thus asking for help here

Any help is kindly appreciated

Finally able to solve this issue

Apparently the issue happened due to this error when apt update

"signature couldn't be verified" error like this one: NO_PUBKEY 467B942D3A79BD29

To fix this I run the below command

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 467B942D3A79BD29
