Error installing ROOT 5.34

Dear Experts,

I am trying to install root 5 in a newly installed Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS laptop. But, it unable to make successfully. Please find below the error:

==> lib/ done
bin/rmkdepend -R -fsql/mysql/src/TMySQLServer.d -Y -w 1000 -- -pipe -m64 -Wshadow -Wall -W -Woverloaded-virtual -fPIC -Iinclude     -pthread -I/usr/include/mysql -D__cplusplus -- /home/pranjal/Downloads/root/sql/mysql/src/TMySQLServer.cxx

/home/pranjal/Downloads/root/sql/mysql/src/TMySQLServer.cxx:55:10: fatal error: my_global.h: No such file or directory
 #include <my_global.h>
compilation terminated.
Makefile:709: recipe for target 'sql/mysql/src/TMySQLServer.o' failed
make: *** [sql/mysql/src/TMySQLServer.o] Error 1

I have already installed pre-requisites on my PC. Can you please let me know what I am missing?

ROOT v5 is no longer supported and may or may not work on newer system or newer dependent libraries.
In this case, unless you need MySQL support in ROOT, you can proceed by disabling the ROOT MySQL plugin in your configure/cmake line.

Thanks for your suggestions. Disabling MySQL plugin works fine but later another errors occur. Therefore, I moved to ROOT v6. Thanks again.
