We get "Security update is available.: MariaDB: https://endoflife.software/applications/databases" while MariaDB/MySQL isn't even installed (mysql_inst = no).

I checked if there where any items left in "remove software" but no luck either.

I have this message on multiple servers without MariaDB or MySQL.

Sounds like a check is faulty in the available update(s) list? @smtalk @DirectAdmin Support ?

All of you provided output with end-of-life versions of MySQL/MariaDB. So, what's the issue?

This was wasn't EOL, but are you sure this server was included?

Sorry to hijack the thread..... I've noticed that when using apt-get (Debian 10), I see mariadb-common...... Not sure why, I have MySQL 5.7 running. Is it fine to remove mariadb-common?

Code:
Setting up mariadb-common (1:10.3.25-0+deb10u1) ...
update-alternatives: error: alternative path /etc/mysql/mariadb.cnf doesn't exist
dpkg: error processing package mariadb-common (--configure):
 installed mariadb-common package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 2
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libmariadb3:amd64:
 libmariadb3:amd64 depends on mariadb-common; however:
  Package mariadb-common is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing package libmariadb3:amd64 (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
