      If server of a version X (e.g. 5.5.29) is already installed, an attempt to install server version X+1 (5.5.30 in this case) does not fail, but does not work either:

      A workaround is to run apt-get install mariadb-server-5.5

      As Daniel found out, the issue is with the mariadb-server deb package, it has "Depends: mariadb-server-5.5" but there's no version, so any version of the mariadb-server-5.5 package is satisfying the dependency (in our case, version 5.5.29).
