    Looks like your filesystem is corrupted, at least the password/user database files.

    Backup the config, reinstall with a current version, then restore and try again. If you're running from SD card, replace the SD card while you're at it. Those don't last forever. If it's an mSATA then you probably just need to reinstall.
