GNOME Disks destroys disk encryption password when trying to change it
Open, HighPublic

Description

Started GNOME Disks, trying to change my disk encryption password: https://tracker.pureos.net/w/pureos/tips/change_disk_encryption_password/

Error is reported:

After restart I was not able to unlock my disk! Neither old or the new password worked.

Perhaps a candidate for reporting upstream.

Looks like this is a wipefs error. Needs more investigation.
