I installed MySQL Workbench in Kubuntu and when I try to enter the localhost connection I get this error:

enter image description here

I have looked for other answers such as: Cannot connect to Database server (mysql workbench) but they don't seem to work for me. If I ran: "sudo mysql -u root" and then do:

ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'password';

I get this error: ERROR 1819 (HY000): Your password does not satisfy the current policy requirements

Help is much appreciated
