The two words are etymologically unrelated.
mid 16th century: from obsolete mutine ‘rebellion’, from French mutin ‘mutineer’, based on Latin movere ‘to move’.
late Middle English: from Latin mutatio(n- ), from mutare ‘to change’.
While they both involve a movement or change, a mutiny is a confrontational change while a mutation is an adaptive change.
It would be incorrect to say that a mutiny is when people mutate.
