    @Artificial Intelligence - I humbly suggest that it is not a problem of password. When I enter the password to log in, it shows that "failed to start session". Moreover, when intentionally I input wrong password, it shows "invalid password,...........". Kindly think again and give your valuable advice.

    okay.

    Try with:
    Code:
    sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop
    sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-session

    @OP

    Please describe your actions just prior to the problems. Did you do a no-no like:
    Code:
    sudo gedit
    …or:
    Code:
    sudo nautilus
    If so, you may have corrupted your /home directory or .Xauthority.
