If it's your sudo password, it should just be your password.

Read a touch on sudo, it's not complicated but helpful info.

You would have set the password during the OS install. So whatever password you selected when entering your User ID.

it says: to install purchased software, you need to authenticate
an application is attempting to perform an action that requires privileges.
authentication as the super user is required to perform this action.

Yes, that's where your password goes.

During the normal Ubuntu install process you set a User Name / Password, was this not the case with your install? If not how did you install Ubuntu ?

You have separate threads on the same issue with 2 separate problems stated. Please don't do this. You need to find your password, if you didn't set it yourself and are using some pre-done VM deal.
