although I reached my initial goal, I'm still not satisfied, because I couldn't imagine to have discovered the most straight way ... thus I will have another try on our next server ...!
In the meantime following findings:
Keep an eye on mysql-server!
Stick to mysql-server 5.7, because 8.0 introduces some more trouble!

now it's done, but the deinstallation seems to be at first incomplete, i.e. has to be fixed manually :(
As promised, details will follow ... when everything is more clear!

Many thanks for your assistance
