There are no such things as "stupid" questions. However if you think your question is a bit stupid, then this is the right place for you to post it. Please stick to easy to-the-point questions that you feel people can answer fast. For long and complicated questions prefer the other forums within the support section.

I have a brand new install of Felicia on this laptop. I ran the mint updates successfully. But now I am having a problem with the users. When I go to Users and Groups and click Unlock, the dialogue hangs for about 30 seconds, and then returns an error: "Could not authenticate" "An unexpected error occurred." So, I can't change anyone's permissions, passwords, or add any users. What can I do?

Can you use the command line?
useradd and passwd
If not we have a serious problem if yes something is wrong with your GUI (serious enough)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
