I had this problem too, I upgrade mysql to 8.0.28-2, and then it cann’t work!
I checked the message and then found that: “mysql needs libicu71-7.1.1”.
I tried to use “yay Ss libicu”, but can’t find libicu71…

finally, I use Timeshift to load the older snapshot. and edit the file “pacman.conf” :

# Pacman won’t upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup

IgnorePkg = mysql
IgnorePkg = mysql-clients

mysql is unsupported on Manjaro and your approach by putting the package on ignore will cause you issues later on with incompatible system libs.

Please use MariaDB instead.
