- Code: Select all
I cannot seem to update Linux Mint (running the 64 bit version) or install any upgrades. As it stands I have numbers within my password. And I think that this might be part of the problem. There is 1 number before and 1 number after the 5 letter password, making the password 7 alpha-numeric characters long.
I do not have the CAPS on. Nor does the 'Shift' key when using the numbers atop the letters work either when trying to input the password. Just as marouane87 says in post #2. Again, that does not seem to work either.
I have also tried the number keys to the left of a keyboard. This does not work either.
I have also tried the terminal command as breaker in post #4 has also posted. This does not work either.
I have also tried the virtual console as talked about in post #4 in the link I gave above and tried to place the username and pass there as well with no luck.
I have also tried to input the password without the numbers preceeding and proceeding the 5 alpa-character password. This does not work either.
