Please don't mind me asking, but did you type in the password twice, i.e. in the "Root password" as well as the "Confirm password" field?
Your screenshot only shows an entry for the "Root password" field.

Hi @Shakeer01 ,

We do not see anything entered in 'Confirm password' field. If you press 'Enter' after filling initial password, it will error out. 

Once you enter the password, press 'down arrow' key and fill the 'Confirm password field. 

Hope that helps
