I can't say anything about your specific setup (don't know what "bionic" is), but I am currently using IPB 4.,3.4 with MariaDB 10.2.16 and have had no problems whatsoever.  On the advice from some people here in the know, I converted to MariaDB from mySQL as MariaDB is a better developed fork (and if I remember correctly Oracle bought mySQL, so some are wondering about its future).

Again, there are others here who know much more than I do, but the only thing I had to do was convert all my tables to InnoDB, which is a more secure and reliable format.  Your DB will grow in size, but for many here it's worth the tradeoff.

So no, no problems with MariaDB so far as I've ever seen (and I have lots of third-party apps and plugins).
