    Since upgrading to MariaDB 10 may cause issues, can I upgrade to V5.5.8 and if so, how can I accomplish this?

    The version isn't forever the same, better to check what you're installing. I had to change in step 7 with this to finally comes to a good end

    sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/mariadb-server-10.2_10.2.13+maria~xenial_amd64.deb
