Everytime I do something with a sudo command, it always asks for a password which won't let me type it but if I go to the next line and then type it, it gives me a "Sorry, Try Again."

Yeah...

Um, that's a security feature...

That way somebody looking over your shoulder can't count how many characters your password is (which would DRASTICALLY decrease the time required to bruteforce it).

Just type in your user password and hit enter

Also, if you want to run more than one command as the root user, type "sudo su" and then "exit" when you're done. Naturally, be careful when logged in as root, as he can obliterate the entire system
