Yep. One thing I forgot to mention in the post, not only did it wipe my databases, it also corrupted every SQL and MariaDB package I had. Sadly, there is no such thing as an "executable" for this kind of stuff on Linux. We use shell scripts, install the package (not applicable in this case), or we install things manually.
