We're installing Debian Stretch stock package python3-mysql.connector for fruec. This package is not available for Buster, at least not in any mainstream format. Figure out why and what to do about it. Maybe see https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/mysql-connector-python

We currently have the following mysql modules for python3 in the repos:

python3_mysql_connector

python3_pymysql
python3_sqlalchemy

Currently python_mysqldb and python3_mysqldb are installed with the mariadb_client package.
