I installed chrubuntu on my ARM chromebook. I need to download from the Ubuntu software center. Whenever I try to download something, it asks for authentication by a password, but I have never set one or was ever asked to set one. Is there a default password or is something weird going on with this? I've tried spacebar, blank, "chronos", "user"

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
The password that it asks for is the password you use to login, which is the same password you set when you were installing Ubuntu. If you've set that password before, enter it.
If you haven't set a password during installation, you can set your password now. Follow the below steps:
That's it; you have now set a password for your account. Now go try to install, and enter that password when prompted. This password will also be the password you use when you boot your Ubuntu.
