I can not dump my MySQL-Databeses, however here's the error message:

Cannot load from mysql.proc. The table is probably corrupted

Also mysql_upgrade seems not to work:

# mysql_upgrade
Looking for 'mysql' as: mysql
Looking for 'mysqlcheck' as: mysqlcheck
Running 'mysqlcheck with default connection arguments
mysqlcheck: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) when trying to connect
FATAL ERROR: Upgrade failed

What does that mean ?

Try to login to MySQL as root, then retry mysql_upgrade

parallels Parallels Plesk Panel:

# mysql_upgrade -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow`

Default method:

# mysql_upgrade -u <username> -p <password>
