I followed the instructions to do the exercise for creating a virtual machine. when I enterred command "sudo apt-get update", it asked me enter a password. I entered and got this output:

Sorry, try again

I verified the password for the microsoft login. It is correct. I am able to login to my microsoft account. Why I can't login here in the Sandbox? I remember I can login to Sandbox before? Why today I can't?

sudo apt-get update

    Hi Ming Gu ,

    I understand you have tried the step from Microsoft learn path. Please try to follow the instructions below, which include SSH into the VM you previously created before using sudo.

    Activate a new sandbox and create the VM as instructed in the exercise.

    Once it finishes, make a note of the publicIpAddress that was assigned to the VM.

    When the errors out, follow the steps below to connect to the VM using SSH:

    Replace <VM public ip address> with the actual publicIpAddressUser's image

    When prompted, enter 'yes' to confirm the SSH connection. Copy and right-click to paste the following three commands one by one in the Cloud Shell window. Wait for each command to complete before pasting the next one:
    User's image

    User's image

    User's image

    User's image
