Root User Password Wont Change

So as usual, I attempted changing the default credentials for my workstation. When I change my root user’s password from changeme it says the password was successfully changed. But when I go to do anything as the root user, it still has my password as changeme. I have tried running “passwd root” to no avail.

Any suggestions as to why this may be happening?

Did you follow documentation?

Thank you, I wasnt aware of putting the username after the passwd command.
