8.0.34 to 8.0.35 upgrade failed and mysqld won't start

Server upgrade from ‘80034’ to ‘80035’ started.
[Note] [MY-013386] [Server] Running queries to upgrade MySQL server.
[ERROR] [MY-013178] [Server] Execution of server-side SQL statement 'ALTER TABLE slave_worker_info STATS_PERSISTENT=0; ’ failed with error code = 1205, error message = 'Lock wait timeout exceeded; try restarting transaction

Can I start the server and bypass the automatic upgrade?
