Maybe I was typing it wrong. So, I typed my password and saved it in a file. Then I copied it to the clipboard. And pasted it into the following programs:
1. In Terminal I ran "sudo su" and pasted the password in. The password was accepted.
2. I then ran the Synaptic Package Manger and when it asked for my password I pasted it in. But, it didn't accept the password.
Anyone have any thoughts on why Synaptic didn't accept the password?
sudo apt-get remove synaptic
$ sudo passwd root

Retype new UNIX password:
