Good overview of upgrade options & advice at

You mustn't try to jump from 5.5 to 8.0---it'll fail on cascading incompatibilities. You need to step through each major version.

I think that's an argument for creating a new mysql instance that starts with a copy of 5.5, step through upgrade-and-debug to 5.6, 5.7 then 8.0, and when no more bugs can be found in the new 8.0 instance then on the slave change master to that new 8.0 instance.
