You did not type the password, while by accident caps lock was pushed?
If not try https://askubuntu.com/questions/24006/how-do-i-reset-a-lost-administrative-password or https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/linux/reset-your-forgotten-ubuntu-password-in-2-minutes-or-less/ .
You could find help for such common issues by investing the few seconds
you need to copy and paste an error message or by typing a few search
e.g. https://www.google.de/search?ei=2mZSW6KyO8_bwQLE_7f4Bg&q=linux+forgot+password&oq=linux+forgot+password&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0l2j0i22i30k1l8.39962.53543.0.53959. .

Sometimes a novice can't know adequate search terms, e.g.
https://www.google.de/search?ei=3WhSW9bILtDSwALEx4OoBQ&q=linux+reset+password+by+chroot&oq=linux+reset+password+by+chroot&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0i22i30k1l4.7759.17122.0.17322. . But you should have been able to get the search terms of the other Google searches yourself.

So you would get this method, the one I recommend to use:

Or this one, see "When you can’t use GRUB" of
https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-reset-any-linux-password/ .

However, the chroot or systemd-nspawn approach isn't required, if you
follow the Arch Wiki.
