I used sudo apt upgrade and got this:

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. 

So I did it and I see this for more than an hour.

Setting up mysql-server-5.7 (5.7.25-0ubuntu0.18.04.2) ...
Checking if update is needed.
This installation of MySQL is already upgraded to 5.7.25, use --force if you still need to run mysql_upgrade

Nothing happens. I have not used MySQL for a long time and don't know what should I do. Understand there must be something with force but I am new with Ubuntu and not so familiar with commands. Can you help me? I don't understand nor what the problem is...

EDIT: I can use MySQL Workbench and get access in Terminal too, but still keep seeing that error
