Ubuntu 20.04 weird problems on mariadb-server-10.3 upgrade

I have just performed a dist-upgrade on ubuntu 20.04 server and got stuck on mariadb-server-10.3

The apt process hung on this package and after 20 minutes waiting I have killed the process. After that, I checked mariadb and it was running with v. 10.3 but apt is still claiming for configuration:

dpkg --configure -a
Setting up mariadb-server-10.3 (1:10.3.29-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)

Hanging forever. But if I check installed packages, I get this:

dpkg -l | grep maria*
ii  mariadb-client-10.3                  1:10.3.29-0ubuntu0.20.04.1                 amd64        MariaDB database client binaries
ii  mariadb-client-core-10.3             1:10.3.29-0ubuntu0.20.04.1                 amd64        MariaDB database core client binaries
ii  mariadb-common                       1:10.3.29-0ubuntu0.20.04.1                 all          MariaDB common metapackage
iU  mariadb-server                       1:10.3.29-0ubuntu0.20.04.1                 all          MariaDB database server (metapackage depending on the latest version)
iF  mariadb-server-10.3                  1:10.3.29-0ubuntu0.20.04.1                 amd64        MariaDB database server binaries
ii  mariadb-server-core-10.3             1:10.3.29-0ubuntu0.20.04.1                 amd64        MariaDB database core server files

From now on, every time I need to update a package/system I going through this hanging problem:

    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mariadb-server:
 mariadb-server depends on mariadb-server-10.3 (>= 1:10.3.29-0ubuntu0.20.04.1); however:
  Package mariadb-server-10.3 is not configured yet.

dpkg: error processing package mariadb-server (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

How to fix this?
