  • If you have a site running on MariaDB / MySQL with many users, you may experience database issues after the upgrade step 2021042100. The upgrade attempts to drop several columns from the user table ("icq", "skype" and others) once they were converted to new user profile fields (MDL-28452). These ALTER TABLE queries typically require copying all the rows into a new tablespace and rebuilding all indexes. Which may eventually lead to time-outs and "MySQL server has gone away" errors. It should be enough and safe to simply wait for the query to finish on the DB server (you may need to monitor currently running queries there) and then re-run the upgrade until the upgrade step 2021042100.01 finishes successfully.
