Via WHM :: Security Center :: Security Advisor, I see this:

You are using MySQL 5.7 server. This version is not available for AlmaLinux 8. You first need to update your MySQL server to 8.0 or later. You can update to version 8.0 using the following command: /usr/local/cpanel/bin/whmapi1 start_background_mysql_upgrade version=8.0 Once the MySQL upgrade is finished, you can then retry to elevate to AlmaLinux 8.

I updated to 8.0.32 awhile back. When I execute mysql -V, I see the following:

mysql Ver 8.0.32 for Linux on x86_64 (MySQL Community Server - GPL)

cPanel was able to fix:

I have looked at your server and found that output was coming from the elevate script that was performing checks to see if your environment would be ok to elevate the OS if needed.

One of the cPanel configuration files was still reporting MySQL 5.7 while the system was updated to 8.0. Based on what I can find, I can subject a last minor change that did not happen when a Mysql was completed on November 17th. I have updated the file, and that issue has gone away.
