No, I use Xubuntu 20.04 bootable USB to install and just followed these
instructions. I remember MCP from Mythbuntu Distro back in the day, but
that's not what I used.

I went with the default MySQL that Mythtv defaults too if no MariaDB is
installed prior to Mythtv.  I have used MariaDB in the past but got caught
with a problem that made a patch fail a couple of years ago.

I have run old and new versions of the backend at the same time and
configure the frontends to work with the correct one for me.
