Almalinux/Rockylinux upgrade Mariadb from 10.5 to 10.8


we know in rpm packages and in Centos and now Alma and rocky that preinstalled we have mariadb 10.3 and with a simple command we could enable Mariadb 10.5

sudo dnf module list mariadb
sudo dnf module disable mariadb:10.3
sudo dnf module enable mariadb:10.5

Now if we want to upgrade lets say to latest 10.8.xx we need to create a mariadb.repo as below

sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/mariadb.repo

MariaDB 10.8 RedHat repository list

name = MariaDB
baseurl = Index of /yum/10.8/rhel8-amd64/

And then try to upgrade! It works in ubuntu but in Alma/Rocky we have errors when yum update is performed

Even if I take it step by step and remove each package that conflicts with previous installation I still have to remove some mysql packages and then phpmyadmin becomes unavailable!

I even tried to purge all previous mysql, mariadb installations and install 10.8.3 from scratch with the same results!

We need to have a manual guide to upgrade to the latest Mariadb version in Alma/Rocky without messing the CyberPanel installation! The guide I’ve read inisde the community forum doesnt work now and needs to be updated
