In case anyone encounters this problem, it is worth checking your MySQL version.
I recently set up a Ubuntu VM for testing and encountered this problem. Ubuntu version 19.10 installs MySQL version 8. The SELECT modifier SQL_CACHE was deprecated as of MySQL 5.7.20, and is removed in MySQL 8.0. BreezingForms 190 (build 933) still uses this modifier in a query called from the admin Manage Records interface, causing an error against MySQL 8. So, if you are using MySQL 8, either revert to MySQL 5.7, or remove the 'SQL_CACHE' modifier from line 1866 of /administrator/com_breezingforms/admin/recordmanagement.class.php.
Note this query also uses the SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS modifier which is also deprecated, but is currently still available.

Thank you for the hint.
I removed the query caching directive, will be included in the next update.
