I have no idea.  You should be able to log in with your current password and go to Account >>> Change Password and see this page

Assuming that you type the correct current password and do not have your Caps Lock key down, you should be able to simply supply a new password, confirm it, and then hit "Save Changes".  Notice the important comment that "Weak passwords are not allowed".  That means that the system will reject a password like "12345" or "My Password" or "P@ssw0rd".  You really need to come up with something more imaginative and harder to guess, like "D%398&xu7".  If you think you'll have a hard time remembering that, or if you are not using a password system like Last Pass that does it for you, yiu can still try something like "@BitB3tter$38", which is relatively easy to remember but hard to guess.

Contact Linden Lab support, they can fix this: https://lindenlab.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/31000131009-contact-support
 

One cause of this problem happens if a Linden hijacked your account in a certain way for testing/fixing something.  It happened to me once when my Aditi account was hijacked by LL & then released & it broke my ability to change password.  Support fixed it quickly.

(Rolig sorry for using you pic :)  )

it also can be the autofill of your current password isn't the one that is stored.
perhaps try putting it in manually before you hit save.

( i have that happen sometimes when i used a alt account before)
