Error upgrading phpmyadmin

After upgrading MariaDB to version 10.6 I proceeded to upgrade Debian 10 with “apt update && apt upgrade && apt dis-upgrade” (not yet apt full-upgrade) and in the last two I get the following error which seems to be related to the database:

Use 'apt autoremove' to remove them.
