Solved: How do I fix Clear Password error, unable to change MySql root user password on Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop?

Problem

MySql Workbench 8 was successfully installed on Ubuntu 20.04 desktop using the terminal. During installation, I set a password for the root user. I am able to connect to the MySql server via terminal without any issues, the MySql server is currently up and active.

I am unable to change the local instance 3306 [email protected]:3306 password on Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop from the opening screen. This is the “Clear Password” error message I encountered:

Clear Password

Could not clear password: forget_password An AppArmor policy prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient…

How can I resolve this issue?

Solution

The message indicates that the keyring service is not able to communicate due to AppArmor. Enabling AppArmor should therefore allow the communication:

sudo snap connect mysql-workbench-community:password-manager-service :password-manager-service

Note: I usually disable AppArmor due to certain inconveniences that require working around.
