After MariaDB was updated to version 10.5.5, the Akonadi server no longer starts.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
akonadi: 20.08.0-1
mariadb: 10.5.5-2
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:

Update to the indicated version of mariadb, and the server does not start automatically. Attempting to start it manually gives the following output:

org.kde.pim.akonadictl: Starting Akonadi Server...
QSocketNotifier: Can only be used with threads started with QThread
org.kde.pim.akonadictl: done.
Connecting to deprecated signal QDBusConnectionInterface::serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString)
org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: Starting up the Akonadi Server...
org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: database server stopped unexpectedly
org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: Database process exited unexpectedly during initial connection!

org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: stdout: ""
org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: stderr: "2020-08-22 11:39:12 0 [Note] /usr/bin/mysqld (mysqld 10.5.5-MariaDB) starting as process 3957 ...\n"

When I try that, this is what I get:

Version check failed. Got the following error when calling the 'mysql' command line client
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
FATAL ERROR: Upgrade failed

Also, after downgrading, I'm able to run KOrganizer, but all my calendar data is gone. This might be because I attmepted to follow the upgrade instructions in:

This is a horrible bug since it results in data loss.

Oh, the command in the reddit post is wrong. It should be 'mariadb-upgrade -S /run/user/1000/akonadi/mysql.socket' (note the missing -S). Please try it.
