    Details

      Description

      Up to and including 10.4, MariaDB installation on deb systems goes like this:

      sudo sh -c 'DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive MYSQLD_STARTUP_TIMEOUT=180 apt-get install --allow-unauthenticated -y mariadb-server mariadb-client libmariadbclient18'
      ...
      The following additional packages will be installed:
        galera-4 libdbd-mysql-perl libdbi-perl libmariadb3 libmysqlclient20
        libterm-readkey-perl mariadb-client-10.4 mariadb-client-core-10.4
        mariadb-common mariadb-server-10.4 mariadb-server-core-10.4 socat
      Suggested packages:
        libclone-perl libmldbm-perl libnet-daemon-perl libsql-statement-perl mailx
        mariadb-test tinyca
      

      On 10.5, for example on Xenial, it goes like this:

      sudo sh -c 'DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive MYSQLD_STARTUP_TIMEOUT=180 apt-get install --allow-unauthenticated -y mariadb-server mariadb-client libmariadbclient18'
      ...
      The following additional packages will be installed:
        galera-4 libdbi-perl libmariadb3 libterm-readkey-perl mariadb-client-10.5
        mariadb-client-core-10.5 mariadb-common mariadb-server-10.5
        mariadb-server-core-10.5 socat
      Suggested packages:
        libclone-perl libmldbm-perl libnet-daemon-perl libsql-statement-perl mailx
        mariadb-test tinyca
      Recommended packages:
        libdbd-mariadb-perl
      

      libdbd-mysql-perl is not installed as a dependency, while libdbd-mariadb-perl is only available on some systems, not all that MariaDB currently supports.

      The change libdbd-mysql-perl => libdbd-mariadb-perl was intentional, but there should be a fallback in case the latter is not available.
