    I just upgraded to mariadb 10.4 and now pure-ftpd-mysql won't start.

    Code:

    Maybe need to update your mariadb client library.

    Code:
    apt install mariadb-client-10.4
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    mariadb-client-10.4 is already the newest version (1:10.4.17+maria~stretch).
    mariadb-client-10.4 set to manually installed.
    The db update was performed by adding the following to /etc/apt/sources.list, then I did an apt update, then an apt upgrade.
    Code:
    # MariaDB 10.4 for Debain 9
    deb [arch=amd64,i386,ppc64el] http://sfo1.mirrors.digitalocean.com/mariadb/repo/10.4/debian stretch main
    deb-src http://sfo1.mirrors.digitalocean.com/mariadb/repo/10.4/debian stretch main
    So I assume everything was updated when I performed an apt upgrade

    Regards

    I have managed to resolve my issue by compiling and installing a patched version of pure-ftpd-mysql for mariadb 10.4

    However now apt wants to upgrade to the newest version.

    How can I stop apt from upgrading pure-ftpd-mysql as I'm concerned I will be back to where I was.

    Code:
    mx:~# apt list --upgradable -a
    Listing... Done
    pure-ftpd-mysql/oldstable 1.0.43-3 amd64 [upgradable from: 1.0.43-3]
    pure-ftpd-mysql/now 1.0.43-3 amd64 [installed,upgradable to: 1.0.43-3]
    Regards

    The problem is using the bleeding edge version of mariadb and not pure-ftpd-mysql.

    This is a known problem which may cause error(s) not only to pure-ftpd-mysql but to other software(s) as well.

    The right fix is to revert back to the one shipped with your OS version.

    If you need "quite" the latest softwares, then perhaps upgrading your OS to latest stable version will help.

    It might not shipped the latest bleeding edge version of softwares but latest stable version of softwares suitable to the latest version of your OS.
