Hi there,

You could check if this is indeed the case with the following query:

SHOW TABLE STATUS FROM `mysql`;

In case that you are using MyISAM, you could repair the table with the following command:

REPAIR TABLE mysql.user;

If you are using a DigitalOcean Managed Database Cluster, I could suggest raising a support ticket:
