Old 16 digits style password were removed from MySQL 5.7.
`mysqladmin old-password` has been removed too, but that is still in `mysqladmin --help`

How to repeat:
$ mysqladmin --help | grep old-password
  old-password [new-password] Change old password to new-password in old format

Suggested fix:
This maybe residual of https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server/commit/12cfb4f9701c56db8ca57d5bc89a2a0bccec2d33

Remove Line-1289 from client/mysqladmin.cc.

Hello Tanaka-San,

Thank you for the report.

Noted in 5.7.10, 5.8.0 changelogs.

mysqladmin --help displayed the old-password command, even though the
command itself was removed in MySQL 5.7.5.
