I did *not* run 'apt-get update'/'apt-get dist-upgrade', but I ran 'apt
dist-upgrade' directly. I must admit that I remembered the meaning of
section 4.4.4 wrong. To avoid removing packages, it is indeed
recommended to do the two step.

Otto, are you now saying that without any action, mysql-server-5.x will
be upgraded to mariadb-server-10.1? If that is true, could that be made
more explicit in the text? If that isn't true, can it be made more
explicit when the system administrator is supposed to install
default-mysql-server during upgrades (that is what I tried to accomplish
in my "improvement")?

Maybe just mention that without update before dist-upgrade things go
wrong. That would already make my experience worth while.
