This happened because MySQL updates were disabled due to the use of some custom MySQL RPMs (Cloud Linux in this case). MySQL updates were disabled with the existence of the following file:

Code:
/etc/mysqlupdisable
The issue was that MySQL updates were not also disabled in /etc/cpupdate.conf:

Code:
MYSQLUP=inherit
RPMUP=daily
SYSUP=daily
The cPanel update can proceed when "MYSQLUP=never" is configured in /etc/cpupdate.conf. This can also be changed in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Update Preferences" prior to updating to version 11.36. We have an internal case open to address "upcp" detecting the presence of /etc/mysqlupdisable. The case number is 63298.

Thank you.

This fix worked for me. I added "MYSQLUP=never" to /etc/cpupdate.conf and it resolved the same error as the OP.
