Update
We are still awaiting a fix from the upstream provider of MariaDB, but with our mitigation in place customers should not experience issues with their database servers. If your server has automatic updates scheduled for tonight, you will likely receive a notification from the server stating the updates have failed. This is to be expected and can be safely ignored. Once there is a new MariaDB package available updates will resume as normal.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of our support team via live-chat, ticket, or by phone at (800)-580-4985, (517)-322-0434 (international).

Identified
We have identified an upstream issue with MariaDB leading to the service becoming unstable after updates on a subset of servers. We have temporarily mitigated this issue by blocking yum updates to MariaDB. Once the issue has been resolved upstream, we will be able to once again allow updates. We will continue to post updates here as they become available.
