Ok, you enter the wrong place

You are required to change your password immediately (root enforced)
Changing password for root.
(current) UNIX password: 
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password:

(current) UNIX password: this line you should enter the password you got from mail

My fix for this was that I’d been trying to paste the password but the console won’t accept pastes. You have to type the password in manually.

tiene razon la persona que dice que es el lugar indicado es incorrecto. la pantalla da la imprecion de que solo se pone el pasword 1 sola vez y se pone 2 veces.

paso 1 es meter el password que te manda digitalocean al mail

paso 2 repetir en la conzola el mismo password mandado por correo, no se por que pero se repite poner el pasword y eso te manda despues a que pongas ya un nuevo password.

que es el paso 3 repetir el nuevo password y listo.
