Why do you recommend upgrading MySQL?
For any version?
Thank you.

I ran MariaDB for quite a while and it was great. Not running it now only because I've upgraded to MariaDB 10.3. :)

MariaDB is one of several MySQL forks that occurred after Oracle bought Sun.

If this is for an established Xenforo installation you may want to create a backup of your database. I've found moving from MySQL to MariaDB raw on a major installation to be a somewhat tricky process.

How so? I'm curious what you've run into. I've converted some insanely large (non-XF) DBs from MySQL to MariaDB without a single issue and plenty of regular-sized XFs.

I don't remember much, it was while upgrading my slave server to the new Debian testing distribution, so it was one of several different headaches. I have a lot of custom configurations, including paths, so AppArmor naturally blew up, and that's most of what I had to fight with and all of what I remember.
