Background: All my sites are down - I am not having any luck with normal DO support (I plan to pay extra for support in hopes that speeds things along.) In the meantime, I thought I’d ask the community…
Here is what I have tried:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com’s password: You are required to change your password immediately (administrator enforced) Welcome message etc. Changing password for root. Current password: Enter new password: Retype new password: Connection to 999.999.999.999 closed.
Basically, the connection is immediately terminated when I attempt to change the password. If I attempt to log back in the same thing happens.
I found a suggestion to use:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org vim .profile But I get: email@example.com’s password: WARNING: Your password has expired. Password change required but no TTY available.

I’ll suggest using the Recovery Console. Here is a link to the documentation:
In there you shouldn’t experience the Connection closed issue.
