So check kernel logs and see if you find something suspicious. Also,
check your Xsession errors file.

Just a sypnopsis: in yourself confirm that apt and aptitude update and
pugrade work. So at least you can safely keep your system update and
install/remove/reinstall packages. The problem appears to be with your
password stuff and Gnome GUI sudo manager. Can you do something else
with GUI sudo (perhaps adjust system clock)?
