There is an upstream issue for the MySQL Docker image that’s affecting users using the v5.7 release (i.e.
circleci/mysql:5.7). More specifically, it’s pulling in a broken MySQL v5.7.28 image. You can find the Issue thread here.
Instead of using:
This will give you the second to last point release, MySQL v5.7.27, which is working in our images as well as upstream.
I’ll update this post again sometime in the future when upstream resolves the issue with the 5.7.28 release.
