The setup has been working without issues for months now. I restarted my PC, had one Windows Update* and now I cannot start the mariadb anymore.

What is this issue and why did it suddenly happen?


If it's relevant, this is the Windows update:

Update for Windows Security platform - KB5007651 (Version 1.0.2109.27002)




Just did a complete purge/uninstall of everything Ubuntu and WSL on my system.

Then I did a step-by-step installation as guided here: https://ubuntu.com/tutorials/install-ubuntu-on-wsl2-on-windows-11-with-gui-support#1-overview

Then I installed the MariaDB (sudo apt install mariadb-server).

When I do the

sudo service mariadb start

I get the [FAIL] again, so it's happening on a fresh installation as well. This time, there are no logs anywhere on the Ubuntu. For those who asked for the "full crash log" the two lines in the `error.log` I had was all there was.

For those who asked, here's my `my.cnf`:

# The MariaDB configuration file
# The MariaDB/MySQL tools read configuration files in the following order:
# 0. "/etc/mysql/my.cnf" symlinks to this file, reason why all the rest is read.
# 1. "/etc/mysql/mariadb.cnf" (this file) to set global defaults,
# 2. "/etc/mysql/conf.d/*.cnf" to set global options.
# 3. "/etc/mysql/mariadb.conf.d/*.cnf" to set MariaDB-only options.
# 4. "~/.my.cnf" to set user-specific options.
# If the same option is defined multiple times, the last one will apply.
# One can use all long options that the program supports.
# Run program with --help to get a list of available options and with
# --print-defaults to see which it would actually understand and use.
# If you are new to MariaDB, check out https://mariadb.com/kb/en/basic-mariadb-articles/

# This group is read both by the client and the server
# use it for options that affect everything
# Port or socket location where to connect
# port = 3306
socket = /run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

# Import all .cnf files from configuration directory
!includedir /etc/mysql/conf.d/
!includedir /etc/mysql/mariadb.conf.d/

My brother has found a github issue with Ubuntu WSL that produced the same AIO error with MySQL.

Here is what worked for me:

sudo apt remove --purge *mysql*
sudo apt remove --purge *mariadb*
sudo rm -rf /etc/mysql /var/lib/mysql
sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt autoclean

Notice my edit in the OP that I did a complete reinstall of WSL and Ubuntu, so it kept happening on the fresh install as well.

Also notice that this completely purged every data I had.

In short, this is WSL issue, not an issue with MariaDB.

The issue on github:
