Hplip-gui asking for root password

Hi! Last time somehow i was able to fix the hplip issue but i formatted my os , so i am back at the starting again. This time i tried hplip-gui.

FIrstly , i downloaded latest hplip run file but it ended up giving me deps error of pyqt and one more. Then i tried hplip-gui with sudo apt install hplip-gui , installed and then i opened HPLIP Toolbox. It popped up for installing required drivers , i clicked yes and default options. After downloading file it started asking for root password. I never set root password.

I tried zorin , left it blank , my sudo user password but none worked.

Can someone tell me how to setup root password or what is the root password?

This would be the same password you use to Log In and to elevate to Root using sudo.
