Cant create a local DBMS in neo4j browser

The neo4j browser was working fine for me and then it suddenly crashed.
The error I see in the neo3j browser is: "Database failed to create: Error: Could not change password"
The error shown in the log file is: "Process [34288] exit with code '0', signal 'null'"
Things I already tried and didn't work:

  1. Restarting the neo4j desktop
  2. Reinstalling the neo4j desktop
  3. switching to offline mode
