On the few unfortunate occasions I have had to use MySql, I have never got the thing to install on Windows 10 without wasting hours of my life trawling through various forums to try to figure what I need to do in order to make something do the one simple task it is supposed to do.

You had one job. 

How to repeat:
Install according to your instructions
Wait for it to fail
Try again.

How much testing do you actually do?

Thanks for the link which you didn't let me have access to. Again, you had one job.

This issue has been known since 2018? What have Oracle done about it?

The answer is nothing.
