      An existing 8.0.12 installation from experimental does not show as suitable for an upgrade after switching to main.

      => dpkg -l percona-server-server-8.0 | tail -n1                                                                                                                                                                    
      ii  percona-server-server-8.0 8.0.12-1-1.alpha.bionic amd64        Percona Server database server binaries 

      The package name changed, so that hides things at first.

      Attempting to install percona-server-server after enabling the ps-80 repo then indicates that the install might make changes to the datadir as it is detected as non-empty and additionally root authentication and default authentication plugin notices appear; both of these may well be upstream

      Installation then fails to to package ownership of /etc/mysql/my.cnf:
