Just in case others are having a similar problem,  we fixed this by reseting the personal 
password, and then using the personal password when asked by sudo:

su root
<type in root's existing password>

passwd personalaccount
<type in new password>
<type in new password again>


sudo apt install make
<type in new personal password>
