Found 19 bugs, today we have some interesting mysql ones:

LP: #1889328 - *(New)     [mysql-8.0]      - package mysql-server-8.0
8.0.21-0ubuntu0.20.04.3 failed to install/upgrade: installed
mysql-server-8.0 package pre-removal script subprocess returned error
exit status 1

Yes, this is not bogus. TLDR, this break the mysql install:

  apt install mariadb-server
  apt remove mariadb-server
  apt install mysql-server

More details in my comment there. Tagged server-next.

LP: #1872541 - *(Incomplete)    [mysql-8.0]      - MySQL client fails to
connect, seems to force SSL

We keep getting reports here. This bug has importance: high, but in my
opinion it should be wontfix, as mysql (better: openssl) is working as
intended. I propose:

 - Updating the release notes
 - Adding a comment pointing to the updated release notes
 - Mark the bug as wontfix

As this involves changing the importance from one extreme to the other
I'd like to have a +1 from the team before proceeding.

LP: #1889472 - (New)            [mysql-5.7]      - mysql-server-5.7
postinst fails when in read-only mode

Good bug report, uncommon use case. It's a mysql limitation we don't
handle very well in the postinst script. Triaged but no server-next.

LP: #1877504 - *(Confirmed)     [mysql-8.0]      - libmysqlclient21 use
of /usr/share/mysql collides with mariadb-server-core-10.3's use of the
same directory

Users report the MythTV crash is now fixed, but the wider issue reported
in the bug still exists.
