For Ubuntu 18.04 you need a special password to log into the system to get things going:-

Specifically, you need to:-

sudo cat /etc/mysql/debian.cnf

and then using the user and password provided:-

mysql -u debian-sys-maint -p

After entering the password, you will be in the console:-

select User, Host, plugin from mysql.user;
update user set plugin='mysql_native_password' where User='root';
flush privileges;
alter user 'root'@'localhost' identified by 'new-password';
flush privileges;
update user set Host='%' where User='root';
flush privileges;
exit

The restart the mysql server:-

sudo service mysql restart
