mysqldump can't find 67 out of 87 tables in database

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

we are using software collections on CentOS 6 to allow a wordpress site to use mysql57.

This invocation terminates without reporting an error.

/opt/rh/rh-mysql57/root/usr/bin/mysqldump -u <user> -p pop_support wp_users --single-transaction --no-data  > table_wp_users_pop_support.sql

The database has 87 tables. Only 20 are output. For example, it does not find wp_users.

I have tried this using root, as shown, and as the user created for wordpress database admin. Output is the same in either case.

I checked the user grants. Both users have all grants on all tables.

What have I overlooked?

Method 1

the server had two installs of mysql57, and with that two different databases of the same name. Hence the different results. Ugh.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
