Prometheus 2 has been released a few weeks ago and did affect quite some parts. One of which is replacing existing functions thus breaking existing Grafana dashboards in some circumstances:
parse error at char 96: unknown function with name "count_scalar"
Scanning through Pull Requests dealing with this change, it seems as if
scalar(count()) is a suitable replacement. See e.g. what Percona did in one of their Pull Requests: PMM-1676 Parse error in Grafana dashboards due to removed count_scalar
Just replace your broken dashboard queries using
count_scalar (don’t get confused with the parens):
count_scalar(...) -> scalar(count(...))
