- Ubuntu gets stuck in a login loop 46 answers
Today I upgraded to Ubuntu 17.04. I get to the login page and type my password correctly, then the sign in message disappears, it stays for a few seconds, then returns and asks me to type the password again.
I am sure I am entering the password correctly since when I tried entering a wrong password, the computer displayed "Wrong password. Try again."
