This _may_ be considered a duplicate of

The root cause may be a little different, but it's essentially the same
thing - packaging doesn't currently support swapping from MariaDB to
MySQL - but neither do the upstreams. We have discussed how this might
be worked around in packaging, but it is non-trivial to implement and
has never been prioritised.

I don't think server-next is warranted here. It's something that affects
people experimenting and doesn't affect servers in production. Nor is
MariaDB in main.
