All those errors are results of failed MariaDB start.

Which means MariaDB cannot read binlogs because they are encrypted. See

I believe your problem in wrong OLD key on NEW server:
1) you have installed NEW system and NEW MariaDB key is generated
2) those NEW key is in use for current MariaDB encryption
2) you have copied constants.yml from OLD system and saved it AS AS
including the old encryption key. "ngcpcfg apply" updated MariaDB
configs and restarted MariaDB -> MariaDB cannot start
(binlogs are encrypted with NEW key but my.cnf has OLD key now).

IMHO, you should replace OLD mysql.encryption.key in constants.yml to
NEW one after copying constants.yml from old system (before you call
"ngcpcfg apply").

Please share your results and we will update public documentation to
highlight this use case!
