Suddenly, Linux does not accept my password

<< < (2/2)

Hi all,

I have Linux Lite 3.8, and it was working for months fine. Suddenly, it no longer accepts my password to return from screen saver or to install anything including updates.
I tried to change the password but then it asks for Admin password, which I don't have and I don't know how to set. I prefer not to reinstall this goddamn thing. Especially because this can happen again.
P.s., please, let's not start with cAPS lOCK on issues or dementia-related suggestions.  :005:

P.s. I have already followed the instructions of the Help Manual on how to reset the password. When I reach the point "At the prompt, type passwd 'my username' it says such user does not exist. ???
