I had the same exact same problem, this worked for me:


- Reboot and choose the "recovery mode" from the boot selection menu
- Choose "drop into root shell" from the recovery menu
- Execute the command: dpkg --purge libpam-smbpass 


Doing this, I am able to logon again.

Before reinstalling libpam-smbpass, delete or rename

sudo mv /var/lib/samba/secrets.tdb /var/lib/samba/secrets.tdb.old
sudo apt-get install libpam-smbpass
