DBD::mysql::db do failed: Password hash should be a 16-digit hexadecimal number

I upgrade to MySQL 5.6 since 5.5 stopped being supported last month. I noticed the password error message during the upgrade but I can't even change the mysql password.

Every time I tried to change the password I get this error:

DBD::mysql::db do failed: Password hash should be a 16-digit hexadecimal number

I even tried to add a 16-digit hexadecimal number and it still gave the same error.
