  • Linux Lite: 5.4 64bit

  • Kernel: 5.x
Yesterday installed LL3.0 and had the same problem about being asked for a password.

Fix: booted in safe mode, was not asked for your password, installed without issue.

However now  have another problem with updates.

Hope this helps someone.

 :)

I also had the same issue......

But I could log in after several attempts,and using different user names and passwords.....

I used the user name "ubuntu" and kept the password field 'blank',pressed enter two times......And it worked. I got this 'ubuntu' user name from the upper left corner of the login screen!

I booted the OS from usb,and I used 'YUMI' create the bootable usb..

Thanks, haven't heard about it.
Installation worked well, so will keep it in mind for the next time.
