Don't forget to verify that you dont have InnoDB Plugin configured (if its the case, you just have to comment the "plugin_load = innodb[...]" and "ignore_builtin_innodb lines" in your my.cnf before launching the procedure).

When if will install the mariadb-server packages, it will ask you for the root password for the databases, you can leave that blank (just press enter) and it will keep your existing password.
