PHP 8.0 Upgrade on Ubuntu 18.04 with phpmyadmin

After upgrading to PHP 8.0 and installing phpmyadmin using the official PPA, phpmyadmin would result in a blank page instead of a login.  The apache2 error.log had several lines of :

Got error ‘PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Array and string offset access syntax with curly braces is no longer supported in /usr/share/php/tcpdf/tcpdf.php on line 16893’

The fix was to manually upgrade the php-tcpdf package:

sudo apt-get install php-tcpdf php-tcpdf
