I have created a new droplet, I got the root access to it, after I SSH and type the root password, I’m being forced to enter a new password, after that the connection closes and the new password is not saved!! I don’t know what is exactly the problem.

I recommend you to set the root password by accesing the web console instesd of ssh connection, go to droplet panel, press access button then console access.
