Hello

That means you do not have any super user defined.
Therefore there is no user, which can use the administration tab in the
sogo web frontend.

Your sogo user is usually a local account on that machine.
Check /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow.
If you have root access, then you can change the password for local user
sogo with:
passwd sogo

If you have sudo privileges, instead use:
sudo passwd sogo


Kind regards,
Christian Mack
