Hi,

I've tried a few times to upgrade mysql to MariaDB and even Mysql5.6 but the upgrade keeps failing and repeating this error.

mysql restarted successfully.
We expected to upgrade to 5.6; however, the system is currently on version 5.5. at /usr/local/cpanel/Whostmgr/Mysql/Upgrade.pm line 815.

Do i have to manually do something via command line to upgrade?

Never mind the cpanel tech support did the upgrade for me. Seems the host provider vps came with a custom version of mysql on initial setup.

You're not going to want to manually upgrade. That will cause cPanel to throw a big old fit.
Your 'error message' really isn't an error message at all. The output of mysql -v will help, as mentioned above.
