Migrating from Mysql 8.0 to MariaDB 10.5

Hello people,

i am using an Ubuntu 20.04 Server and trying to perform a migration from Mysql 8 to MariaDB 10.5. Unfortunately it seems like this can't be done smoothly because just removing mysql-server-8.0 and installing mariadb-server leads to db server not loading because InnoDB has troubles reading ibdata file.

Because of that i am starting from scratch, which means backing-up the whole db

mysqldump -u USER -p --all-databases --routines --triggers > dump.sql

removing mysql 8, wiping out /etc/mysql and /var/lib/mysql, and install a clean mariadb package, which is a succesful operation up to now.

However, when i try to restore the db

mysql -u USER -p < dump.sql

mariadb is having some trouble with the database called "mysql" and it's "db" table. In fact this table also has a "Db" column inside which apparently can not be accepted, infact if i try to name the table anything else the restore is being completed. Here is the table:

CREATE TABLE `db` (

`Host` char(255) CHARACTER SET ascii COLLATE ascii_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT '',

`Db` char(64) COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL DEFAULT '',

`User` char(32) COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL DEFAULT '',

`Select_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Insert_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Update_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Delete_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Create_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Drop_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Grant_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`References_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Index_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Alter_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Create_tmp_table_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Lock_tables_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Create_view_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Show_view_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Create_routine_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Alter_routine_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Execute_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Event_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

`Trigger_priv` enum('N','Y') CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'N',

PRIMARY KEY (`Host`,`Db`,`User`),

KEY `User` (`User`)

) /*!50100 TABLESPACE `mysql` */ ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_bin STATS_PERSISTENT=0 ROW_FORMAT=DYNAMIC COMMENT='Database privileges';

The command also works if i change ENGINE to MyIsam instead of InnoDB, but all the other tables are InnoDB and so i would like to know if this could lead to issues or if there is any other workaround of suggestion.

Many thanks in advance
