... revisited the shadow file and made "drastic" (as in not recommended) changes....

drank 2 cans of beers first

reboot....

and finally voilà !... was able to reset the password

Still my thanks to MarkHaysHarris777 and somebody called keepitsimpleengineer

Beer = guaranteed success. The only question that remains ... what beer was it ?
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
