Some tables in the mysql database have an incorrect schema.
Connect to the server via SSH.
Upgrade the mysql database:
# MYSQL_PWD=`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` mysql_upgrade -uadmin -T --debug-check MySQL
If the command above reports the following:
This installation of MariaDB is already upgraded to 10.5.15-MariaDB.
There is no need to run mysql_upgrade again for 10.5.16-MariaDB.
You can use --force if you still want to run mysql_upgrade
Use "--force" option to trigger the upgrade:
# MYSQL_PWD=`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` mysql_upgrade -uadmin --force
