I'd really like to bump this thread. I'm in the same boat.

Now when I go to terminal and type sudo then a command it asks for a password if I leave it blank and press enter is say invalid password. if I type the previous password it still says invalid. I seem to be stuck in a loop and I am not sure how to get out of it so I can have SU access. Any help? I can still log on to the system fine the issue only shows up in terminal and if I try to change the password in User accounts it asks me for a password that I don't have. Is there a default embedded password that it is expecting in this case?
I don't want to type "su", I would rather just be able to do it like I'm used to and typing "sudo command
And when I go back to User Accounts, I can't even Unlock it, because it asks for a password, and leaving it blank doesn't work.
Someone please help me resolve this.
