If I  plugin='mysql_native_password'  (Todor answer
<https://askubuntu.com/a/801950/349837>) I could get rid of those
[Warning] 'user' entry 'root at localhost' has both a password and an
authentication plugin specified. The password will be ignored.
when `sudo systemctl status mysql.service`. But have a side-effect:
  $ sudo koha-remove library
  Removing Koha instance library
  ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using
password: NO)
So I move back to plugin='unix_socket' and koha-remove now works fine.
