This package was removed from Ubuntu on August 8, 2015 (Wily):
because it has been removed from Debian:

According to the Debian bug report, mysql authentication is native in
apache2 and does not require a separately packaged module. Finally, the
Debian package has been indicated as broken for 2 years prior to the
Debian removal.

In the future, it would be helpful if more context was given, as I had
to presume you were referring to the package's removal from 16.04.
