Fun with InnoDB Persistent Statistics

Something interesting happened to me in the last days, and it is worth sharing.  I was upgrading MariaDB (MySQL also impacted) to a new major version and mysql_upgrade showed something like this:
Phase 4/7: Running 'mysql_fix_privilege_tables'
ERROR 1062 (23000) at line 586: Duplicate entry 'schema-table_name#P#partition_name_truncated' for key 'PRIMARY'
ERROR 1062 (23000) at line 590: Duplicate entry 'schema-table_name#P#partition_name_truncated' for key 'PRIMARY'
ERROR 1062 (23000) at line 593: Duplicate entry 'schema-table_name#P#partition_name_truncated' for key 'PRIMARY'
FATAL ERROR: Upgrade failed
