The adventure continues.

I reach out to Apple's community help and they tell me to get help from MySQL.

MySQL sales say they can't help because I don't have a subscription to their help service. The cheapest one is only $2,000. No wonder Ellison is stinking rich. But they do suggest so I join that discussion board. Waiting for a reply.

Never give up so I continue searching and find MySQL's bug databae

and I search for "my bug"

Paste "mysql-8.0.26-macos11-arm64" (no quotes) into the Find Bugs search field and there it is

Sev S3
Version mysql-8.0.26
CPU ARM (Apple Silicon M1)
Summary mysql-8.0.26-macos11-arm64.dmg installer hangs/freezes

I assume that the "force quit" sent the bug report to Apple and they forwarded it to MySQL -- all automatically, automagically

I guess I'll just have to wait for them to fix it.
