JIRA 8 with MySQL 8

I'm having issues installing a clean instance on my Ubuntu 20.04 using MySQL 8 and JIRA 8.8.  I have a brand new Database created in the right format and no matter what I do, I keep getting the below Start Up Error..

Hi Andrew,

did I understand it right the installation is a completely fresh one?
If so, is there any specific need for using Jira 8.8?

I am just asking because there is, as per writing these lines, Jira 8.14 out.
The latter one is capable of using MySQL 8.

So if there is no hard restriction for you to use Jira 8.8 I'd recommend to take a more recent version (8.13 or 8.14).
