Terminal Password

th flag

For no reason, I am unable to put my password into the Terminal when trying to execute a command. My system is:

george_le_porge@desktop:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 22.10
Release:    22.10
Codename:   kinetic

The cursor just does not move.

Thanks for any help

The cursor doesn't move when typing passwords ... It's a privacy/security feature ... But it will read your typed password when you press Enter.

Although, I now have this message. : kinetic Release' does not have a Release file. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details. W: An error occurred during the signature verification.

'The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A8580BDC82D3DC6C

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
