Hi !

Seems like you have Mysql (ver8) installed instead of MariaDB. Installing cqrlog 2.5.2 from package should install MariaDB. Are you sure you are installing the latest (2.5.2) version, or older one?

Have you checked these messages?

The link to installer seems to be broken in first message. Working link is

Also, what linuxmint version

Also, what linuxmint version are you using?

Be for running my script please remove all you installed:
sudo apt remove cqrlog mysql-server mysql-client mysql-common
Hopefully that command works, not 100% sure... every mysql seems to be a bit different from what i remember

Or , if you have not done much with your system, just reinstall Linuxmint. then you have a clean install and i guarantee that my installer works like a charm

good luck !
