sed: invalid option -- '1'
Usage: sed [OPTION]... {script-only-if-no-other-script} [input-file]...

  -n, --quiet, --silent
                 suppress automatic printing of pattern space
  -e script, --expression=script
                 add the script to the commands to be executed
  -f script-file, --file=script-file
                 add the contents of script-file to the commands to be executed
                 follow symlinks when processing in place
  -i[SUFFIX], --in-place[=SUFFIX]
                 edit files in place (makes backup if SUFFIX supplied)
  -c, --copy
                 use copy instead of rename when shuffling files in -i mode
  -b, --binary
                 does nothing; for compatibility with WIN32/CYGWIN/MSDOS/EMX (
                 open files in binary mode (CR+LFs are not treated specially))
  -l N, --line-length=N
                 specify the desired line-wrap length for the `l' command
                 disable all GNU extensions.
  -r, --regexp-extended
                 use extended regular expressions in the script.
  -s, --separate
                 consider files as separate rather than as a single continuous
                 long stream.
  -u, --unbuffered
                 load minimal amounts of data from the input files and flush
                 the output buffers more often
  -z, --null-data
                 separate lines by NUL characters
                 display this help and exit
                 output version information and exit

If no -e, --expression, -f, or --file option is given, then the first
non-option argument is taken as the sed script to interpret.  All
remaining arguments are names of input files; if no input files are
specified, then the standard input is read.

A MySQL or MariaDB server package () is installed.

The current MariaDB server package is provided by a different
vendor (package  is not installed) than Monty Program AB.  Some files may be installed
to different locations, including log files and the service
startup script in /etc/init.d/.

Upgrading directly from MySQL <unrecognized version package  is not installed> to MariaDB 10.0 may not
be safe in all cases.  A manual dump and restore using mysqldump is
recommended.  It is important to review the MariaDB manual's Upgrading
section for version-specific incompatibilities.

A manual upgrade is required.

- Ensure that you have a complete, working backup of your data and my.cnf
- Shut down the MySQL server cleanly
- Remove the existing MySQL packages.  Usually this command will
  list the packages you should remove:
  rpm -qa | grep -i '^mysql-'

  You may choose to use 'rpm --nodeps -ev <package-name>' to remove
  the package which contains the mysqlclient shared library.  The
  library will be reinstalled by the MariaDB-shared package.
- Install the new MariaDB packages supplied by Monty Program AB
- Ensure that the MariaDB server is started
- Run the 'mysql_upgrade' program

This is a brief description of the upgrade process.  Important details
can be found in the MariaDB manual, in the Upgrading section.

Answer Answered by Elena Stepanova in this comment.

There is a known bug MDEV-5986 which is the reason for the sed error, it will be fixed in the next version. But even after this, it might not always be possible to do a major upgrade (e.g. 5.5=>10.0) automatically, in some cases it requires the manual process as the comment describes. Please follow the instruction provided in the output.

Uninstalling the old version will not remove your data, but as for any upgrade, previous data backup is strongly advised.
