Cannot install mysql-client on WSL Ubuntu

I am in the django mastery course part 3 trying to get to work with celery. While installing mysql server with the command > sudo apt install mysql-server<
I get an error saying

Cannot open /proc/net/unix

and then the following operations are not permitted. Has anyone run into this issue? I tried looking on stack overflow and was unable to find a solution.

If i continue the rest of the instructions the mysql server does not connect. Any assistance would be appriciated.
