How on earth can one remove and replace the root user? I tried
I'm not sure if it was possible on 7.x or 8.x ... but I would NOT try something like that ....
eventually, I would use the commands rmuser and adduser ... pw man page is unreadable by humans :D ;)

Can you try to simply change the root's password ?
Or may be add a new user ?

If changing the password doesn't work, try a rollback;
if that fails too ... reinstall ;)
