Thanks for responding.
So what happened is that i installed Nexus 3.30 for the first time on Linux.
After installing and the service is running, i try to access it via the UI. Once i click on sign in , I use the user “admin” and password retrieved from /opt/sonatype-work/nexus3/admin.password
But the issue seems to be that this user does not seem to have the admin role. From the instructions it says its supposed to ask me to reset the password after the initial log in but that does not seem to happen. Also, i seem to be able to use that admin account with any random password.
Therefore once i log in with that it keeps telling to retrieve the password from the admin.password file and also i dont have the option to see the configuration, settings or create new repositories. The only thing i can see is browse and search.
