Hey there! I believe this could be a result of the update to MySQL version 8.

"Prior to MySQL 8.0, the total length of all enum elements could go up to approximately 64k since it was stored in 2 bytes in the FRM file. Hence tables and stored procedures could be created with enum elements greater than 255 chars. However in MySQL 8.0, tables or stored procedures containing too long enum literals(i.e greater 255 chars) are not supported."

That was taken from this article, under step 7:

Can you review your table structure to see if that is the case? It seems like modifying the table is the most likely solution to the issue.
