read what i wrote ;)
you need to set a root password before booting (or make the root account
password-less) ...

i highly doubt that was the same image then, ubuntu-core has never set a
password or enabled any way to log in without tinkering and the image is
identical on all architectures ...

also see (though the "sudo" suff is nonsense there
since sudo is not seeded on these images you need to set a root pw or
edit /etc/shadow as i said above)
