Unable to install MySQL on macOS Catalina

I download and install MySQL. I go to the MySQL Pane in System Preferences. Although I expected MySQL to be running, it isn't. If I click on "Start MySQL Server" I get the error message "legacyLoader wants to make changes", but when I enter my system password nothing happens.

I tried manually loading the launchd file with
sudo launchctl load -F

Now in the MySQL System Preferences Pane I see the two red indicators flashing momentarily green, so MySQL is at least being awakened but appears to be quickly dying.

I haven't found any posts that help with my particular problem(s). Any assistance would certainly be appreciated.
