This probably isn’t the right spot for this, but I did find a solution for this and wanted to share.
As the title says, the pretty much default container from the image was failing to start after docker compose pulled. I had it set for 5.7, so when troubleshooting I changed it to 5.7.34, then 5.7.32 and 5.7.29 which didn’t help.
The log message I was getting
2021-06-23T14:15:43.236845Z 0 [ERROR] Fatal error: Can't open and lock privilege tables: Table 'mysql.columns_priv' doesn't exist 2021-06-23T14:15:43.236873Z 0 [ERROR] Fatal: can't initialize grant subsystem - 'Table 'mysql.columns_priv' doesn't exist' 2021-06-23T14:15:43.236885Z 0 [ERROR] Fatal error: Failed to initialize ACL/grant/time zones structures or failed to remove temporary table files. 2021-06-23T14:15:43.236973Z 0 [ERROR] Aborting
Removing the container and images didn’t help, but removing the volume is what ended up saving my bacon.
