I have MySQL installed on my test server (Debian 10). I recently updated it to the newest version (8.0.29), but there are some issues with it so I want to go back to an older version (8.0.28). But I can't for the life of me figure out how to do so.
I have removed the existing database, and tried to re-install it using:
apt-get install mysql-server=8.0.28-1debian10
but that didn't work, and suggested I run:
apt --fix-broken install
which of course upgraded it to the latest version again.
I have tried numerous variations of this,but all result in
mysql-server can't be found or similar errors.
I have been scouring the internet, and there seems to be lots of people asking similar questions, but no real solutions. Even the official MySQL documentation glosses over this bit.
Can it be done? And if so, how? It's only a test database so I have no issues with scrapping it and starting again.
