Some strange thing is happening on my system as I try to log in to tty1. After I enter the
username and hit Enter, the prompt drops to a newline instead of
password. After hitting Enter, the
password is displayed. After hitting the first character of
password, it again drops to a newline. After that while I am entering
password, it shows
Login Incorrect and repeats the whole thing. I can successfully Login via other
What I tried
systemctl stop getty@tty1 systemctl start getty@tty1
The issue still persists afterwards.

I personally don't think any of these can affect the system.
sudo lsof /dev/tty1

Note: I had plymouth installed but I had installed it a week back but the issue wasn't present after that time. Also
sudo locate plymouth gives no result. So I have no idea about where the plymouth in the above output comes from
I am able to login after doing
sudo killall plymouthd. However,
sudo systemctl status plymouthd returns
Unit plymouthd.service could not be found.
