mysql said: ERROR 1819 (HY000) at line 1: Your password does not satisfy the current policy requirements

I Cannot set PHPMyAdmin Application password. No matter how strong, complex password I try to set, the console will always return the error 1819: I am using putty for console access using SSH key.
here is a sample password: yIO8v3hVaDyIO8v3hVai$0zo*saD.

I tried combining it with long, short, alphanumerical, and others. But always getting the same error.

The PHPMyAdmin Application password screen will return an error saying password mismatch even i try to let it decide the random password(pressing enter by leaving the field empty) I am using ubuntu 20 with PHP 7.4
command used: sudo apt update && sudo apt install phpmyadmin php-mbstring.

What I could suggest in your case is rather than installing PHPmyAdmin with apt is to install it manually.

To do so you can follow the steps from this answer here:

That way you will make sure that you are using the latest PHPmyAdmin version and it will be compatible with the latest MySQL version.

Let me know how it goes!
