To start, I'd read this, then come back if you still have questions
about logging in.
Further, please explain what you mean that you can't log in but you can
use 'bash'. I doubt you'll have any shell, bash or otherwise, without
first logging in.
If you're talking about logging in as 'root', that's not available
without specifically enabling it (in Debian and derivatives, such as
Ubuntu). The security model in Debian flavors of GNU/Linux call for the
use of /sudo/ when root privileges are needed.
Of course, I may have wholly misunderstood the question(s) - if that's
the case, sorry for the noise.
