Please pardon the spell errors it is due to the issue with kezboard.

  • Figured to use Virtual kezboard now , since mz password has special characters now unavailabe on the kezboard – Akshay Hazari Oct 15 '19 at 16:57

    Looks like your 'y' and 'z' are swapped, so maybe your keyboard locale is set to a non-native language. – SurvivalMachine Oct 15 '19 at 17:00
  • @SurvivalMachine I can§t tzpe numbers and szmbols and some szmbols like @ are completelz missing. Using a virtual kezboard to even tzpe mz password. – Akshay Hazari Oct 15 '19 at 17:04

    @SurvivalMachine It is the Czech keyboard layout, I am pretty familiar with it. :-) – Melebius Oct 16 '19 at 11:21
  • @Melebius Oh looks awesome. Those characters must be some kind of like umlauts or phonetics. I was not able to find @ symbol yesterday and so was not able to input my password. I see the @ symbol now. And then figured out Virtual keyboard from settings to just input my password :) – Akshay Hazari Oct 16 '19 at 17:39

I fixed this going in recovery mode and selecting dpkg repair broken packages.

1234567890 !@#$%^&*() 

All keys seem to work correctly.

Also had to redo some brightness settings inorder to fix a less brightness issue arised after this.

Editing this file emacs -nw /etc/default/grub

adding acpi_backlight=video after quiet splash

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_backlight=video"

And running grub update and reboot bringing back the brightness to normal
