I had same problem in symbolic links. After remove simlinks and make hard links problem solved

rm /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/php-gettext/*
ln /usr/share/php/php-gettext/* /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/php-gettext

I know this is coming late. But what @denis.grasp may have forgotten to mention is that you need to ensure package php-gettext is installed. sudo apt-get install php-gettext before trying to create the link. Otherwise Directory `/usr/share/php/php-gettext/ Will be missing.

How did you install phpMyAdmin? Can you pastebin its nginx configuration file?

I had to re-create the server configuration file and it works fine post that.
