Execute the below command in the terminal,

pkexec nano /etc/sudoers

and make sure the contents of the file is as below,

If you do not see the contents as shown in the above screenshot, then edit the file and add the above-shown uncommented lines as it is. Save the file and then try to log in to the root user.
