After resetting the password for my root user on a droplet, I cannot seem to properly change it. I tried two SSH clients -bitvise and putty- and they both disconnected or exited respectively as few seconds after hitting return after entering a new password.
I also used the console from the Digitalocean web interface, but that also does not seem to work as after hitting return from entering a new password, it goes back to ask me to enter the username again.
I tried booting into recovery mode -to see if changing it from there would work-, but apparently, my “image” does not seem to support that.
Is this a common problem that can be resolved?
