Problem login in using TTY

Post by betops » Tue Feb 12, 2019 10:37 am

Hi everyone!!
I'm not being able to login to any tty, when I type my username and hit enter, it bypasses the password ask, and it keeps failing in a loop like I was hitting enter all the time.
I have found this is a linuxmint 19.1 problem since I already have Ubuntu 18.04.1 in another partition with the same kernel 4.15.0-45-generic and I can use tty normaly there.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day!! :)

This is the output in /var/log/auth.log during the issue
