Hello, i just purchased a new droplet in DG with WHM cpanel and imported several accounts from an other vps hosted by an other provider, i used the transfer tool, and all is working as it should be, but probably i did a little mistake, seems like in the previous vps it had MariaDB, but in the new droplet i have mysql 5.7, so first i created a new test droplet, and try to do the upgrade but it failed, i got this log:

Obtained version information from system. Proceeding with MySQL/MariaDB upgrade despite the following: Critical: MariaDB enables "strict mode" by default as of version 10.2. Strict mode controls how MariaDB and MySQL handle invalid or missing values in data-change statements such as INSERT or UPDATE. Applications not built with strict mode enabled may cause undesired behavior; please verify applications using MariaDB are compatible before upgrading. More information about strict mode is available here. Normal: When you upgrade from MySQL® to MariaDB 10.2 or later, the mysql_upgrade utility may emit several database table-related errors. The discrepancies in the tables between MySQL and MariaDB versions produce the errors; however, the upgrade process will resolve these issues.
