I followed the instructions on the MySQL web site and got MySQL server 8 mostly installed but it won't launch because it fails pretty quickly during the upgrade process. The apt-get portion installed all the files. But when it launches this is what is added to my error.log file and I have no clue what to make of it and Google is not being helpful.

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
Attempting to collect some information that could help diagnose the problem.
As this is a crash and something is definitely wrong, the information
collection process might fail.

It is possible that mysqld could use up to 
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 134902 K  bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

I know this is all that is being added because I am adding a few blank lines to the log just before trying to launch MySQL and this code is all that comes up after my injected blank lines.

I am running Ubuntu 18lts server. MySQL 5.7 rand fine and my database had no errors because I checked it before trying the upgrade.

I suspect this may be caused by a bug that happens when in-line upgrades go from 5.5 to 5.6 to 5.7 then finally 8.0.

The suggestion to deal with this is to run optomize table on every single table while in version 5.7. Once the 8.0 upgrade is attmpted, it is too late because you cannot go back.

I am giving up, rebuilding this server from scratch, then install 5.7 and perform the optomize table then try the upgrade to 8.0 again.

Good thing I have another 5.7 server running and a full backup of all the data.
