Unfortunately that seems to look like an incompatibility between slurmdbd and
that version of MySQL.   The syntax was deprecated in 8.0.12 and removed
just one point release later in 8.0.13! :-(

The release notes for MySQL 8 say:



SQL Syntax Notes

Incompatible Change: The deprecated ASC or DESC qualifiers for GROUP By
clauses have been removed. Queries that previously relied on GROUP BY sorting
may produce results that differ from previous MySQL versions. To produce a
given sort order, provide an ORDER BY clause.


So you'll probably need to back up, downgrade MySQL and then
reimport your backup before restarting slurmdbd.

If you have a support contract I would strongly recommend
opening a bug on this with SchedMD.

Best of luck,
