I have a problem with updating mariaDB to the latest version

Hello. I have a problem with updating mariaDB to the latest version. After updating the repo to the latest version, I get error messages when updating the DNF. I am unable to cope with updating mariadb to the latest version. Below is the message from the terminal:

Blockquote
Error: Transaction test error:

Seems like two packages,

MariaDB-common-11.0.3-1.el8.x86_64
mysql-common-8.0.32-1.module_el8.8.0+3567+56a616e4.x86_64

provides same file. That seems normal:

$ dnf -q provides /usr/share/mysql/charsets/Index.xml
mysql-common-8.0.30-1.module_el8.6.0+3340+d764b636.x86_64 : The shared files required for MySQL server and

Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/share/mysql/charsets/Index.xml

However, the packages:

$ dnf -q list mariadb-common mysql-common
Available Packages
mariadb-common.x86_64   3:10.3.35-1.module_el8.6.0+3265+230ed96b   appstream
mysql-common.x86_64     8.0.32-1.module_el8.8.0+3567+56a616e4      appstream

are different, the Alma 8 has mariadb 10.3, while you see MariaDB 11.

Application Streams do not explain that, no “mariadb 11” streams in:

$ dnf -q module list \*sql\* \*aria\*

postgresql         15               client, server [d]                PostgreSQL server and client module

Hint: [d]efault, [e]nabled, [x]disabled, [i]nstalled

You have third-party (repo) MariaDB?

I would disable the myql stream:

dnf module disable mysql

Logically, that should make the mysql packages invisible.
