I was shutting down and as it was taking a while, i forced it to shutdown (bad idea in retrospect).
Upon starting up, I get the error
Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked.
I follow @nightromantic’s solution here but instead of using a fedora live disk, i used an ubuntu 18.04 live disk and reset the root password.
Now it boots up to the Login Page but can’t Login for both my initial admin user and root, I also can’t login using the terminal.
I have also tried to rename .local and .config folders but no luck.
