I used these steps and this solved the same problem for me

  1. Open Terminal and type sudo passwd root
  2. Now terminal will ask for your password type your existing password
  3. After you entered your correct password. Now the terminal will ask for new password. This will be used as a root password. You can keep this password the same as Sudo password.
  4. Re-enter the password to confirm. After this, you will be able to use root access in the terminal.

Let me know if this worked for you.
