I am using DigitalOcean to learn Ubuntu. I have a droplet setup and have following all previous tutorials and resolved all problems by searching Digitalocean or other resaources online. My droplet is running Ubuntu 18.04.3 and has a LAMP stack installed and tested (basic test).
I am now tring to install PhpMyAdmin using this (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-on-ubuntu-18-04) but getting a circular error when connecting PhpMyAdmin to my MySQL which has a root password set.

Your options are: │ * abort - Causes the operation to fail; you will need to downgrade, │ reinstall, reconfigure this package, or otherwise manually intervene │ to continue using it.
