Hello friend!

The most common reason for this is a misunderstanding of what is being asked. This flow of actions will cause the described event:

Step 1: Login with user/pass.

Step 2: Linux states that you need to change the password, prompts for current password. You type the new password that you want. Linux disconnects.

The reason this misunderstanding occurs is because it looks like it might be asking for the new password, when it is in fact asking you to repeat the current password that you just used to log in.

Kind Regards, Jarland
