After do-release-upgrade form 18.10 to 19.04, mysql workbench was considered as not supported component, as be removed.
not found mysql workbench available of 19.04 on download page.

How to repeat:
on ubuntu 18.10, 
run sudo do-release-upgrade
type Y during upgrading process

expect: mysql workbench works on 19.04
result: mysql workbench was removed, as fail to re-install

Suggested fix:
mysql workbench works on 19.04

Hello Jeffrey,
I had the same (boring) problem. And I solved it with Docker containing Ubuntu 18.04 and the MySQL Workbench. It's working without any problem.
I can send you more infos if needed.
