Unable login, unable change admin password

I had Grafana up and running for about a week, when I came in Monday morning the page had expired and I needed to log back in. Except it would not accept my password. Selecting “Forgot your password” did no good, so I looked for means to reset the password. I was able to find in Github issues thread how to reset via commandline connecting to the sqllite database. I should mention I also backed up the grafana.db, and tried the method to have a new grafana.db created as if this was a new install. Still can not login.

Now here is the real issue. So right now I have user admin with password admin. I open the webpage, type those in and next get screen prompting me to change the password. Except if I select “skip” it goes back to login, and if I try to enter a new password I get a red error box stating “! Unauthorized”…and nothing helps.

What I get for logging is of not much assistance that I can see -
t=2018-10-23T07:50:12-0500 lvl=info msg=“Request Completed” logger=context userId=0 orgId=0 uname= method=POST path=/login status=401 remote_addr=10...61 time_ms=220 size=42 referer=https://..com:3001/login
t=2018-10-23T07:50:34-0500 lvl=info msg=“Request Completed” logger=context userId=0 orgId=0 uname= method=GET path=/ status=302 remote_addr=10...61 time_ms=1 size=61 referer=https://..com:3001/login

It has done this with my original grafana.db and newly created on. It does this in Chrome and Edge. I did bump log level to debug and tried again, only thing I get was this:

t=2018-10-23T08:03:33-0500 lvl=info msg=“Request Completed” logger=context userId=0 orgId=0 uname= method=PUT path=/api/user/password status=401 remote_addr=10...61 time_ms=0 size=26 referer=https://..com:3001/login

I am also facing the same problem , were you able to solve it ?

I Have the very same issue basic install on ubuntu 18

wget -q -O - https://packages.grafana.com/gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository “deb https://packages.grafana.com/oss/deb stable main”
sudo apt-get install grafana
sudo systemctl start grafana-server
sudo systemctl status grafana-server

I tryed this to set the password but I get back to the login page…:
grafana-cli admin reset-admin-password password

I am having the same problem. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and the same behavior happens. I am on Windows 10 and tried using Chrome and Edge and both have the same behavior. Did anyone ever find a solution?
