Installation hangs under Jessie

smaressmares EntrantInactive User Role Beginner
The installation of Percona Server 5.7 from the apt repository hangs under Debian Jessie and cannot even be cancelled by Ctrl+C. Once the installation starts, I am asked for the root password and its confirmation, then the installer continues and suddenly asks for a password:
smares@smares:/etc$ sudo apt-get install percona-server-server-5.7

No matter what I enter there, nothing happens. I assume this is related to the fact that I disabled the ability to su without password by commenting out
auth       sufficient pam_rootok.so
in /etc/pam.d/su and uncommenting
auth       required   pam_wheel.so
.
