After update; RetroPie asks for login all of a sudden
So I went to the retropie update option told update to the newest packages, did that fine, reboot;
Suddenly asking for a login in basic text...
I didn't change the login, so I went with the default pi, rasberry; it says the login is inccorect. What gives!? What's the default login after the update!? Why did it change the previous default login; why is it asking for one!?

Can you try filling in the form in the read this first post, so we know what your exact setup is, which version of retropie you are running, etc.?

sudo raspi-configand re-enable auto-login to console.
No update will change your password (either an OS or RetroPie update), so make sure you're typing it correctly (i.e. is

Pi Model or other hardware: B+
Power Supply used: Whatever came with the starter kit
RetroPie Version Used: 4.4
Built From: Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website
USB Devices connected: wireless Rii X8 keyboard via dongle
Controller used: Xbox One Controller but not plugged in, as I wanted to redo the controller config, I screwed it up the first time around
Error messages received: Login incorrect
@mitu I can't login, that's the problem. If I could login I probably would have been able to figure it out myself; but I can't login.
I tried it with the first letters capitalized; that nets the same result.
I'm going to have to format the microSD and reinstall RetroPie from scratch, aren't I?
