Running SLES12 on a VirtualBox VM I get the notification that there are software updates. Trying to invoke the update, a popup appears and forces input of administrator password.
When I enter the password for the
root user, I get the error message
Sorry, that didn't work. Please try again.
But I am sure that I entered the correct password. I also tried the password for the current user (who is member of the
sudo group), but that also fails.
Logging in as
root and going
su on the shell both work fine with the password, but this dialog fails. Who can tell my why and how to solve this problem?
Both passwords, the
root password and the current user's password work fine all the time. Only this dialog returns that error.
