It could be that your phpmyadmin configuration was somewhat "customised" and that it's no longer compatible with the way your MySQL server's configured. This should normally by handled properly when upgrading both.

If you don't understand your phpmyadmin configuration or didn't set it up yourself, some issues with phpmyadmin's configuration in Debian/Ubuntu can be overcome by purging and reinstalling the phpmyadmin package, or perhaps simply with sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin.
