SOLVED Locked out of sudo and su after installing python-validity and fprintd

Help! I configured python-validity as in this link:

then changed my pam.d/login pam.d/sudo pam.d/su as in this link:

the changes made to each file are:

auth	required
auth	sufficient
auth	sufficient try_first_pass likeauth nullok
auth	required
#auth       required
#auth       requisite
#auth       include      system-local-login
#account    include      system-local-login
#session    include      system-local-login

now when i try fprintd-verify I get this message:

Using device /net/reactivated/Fprint/Device/0
ListEnrolledFingers failed: Traceback (most recent call last):

    raise Exception('Unexpected TLS version %d %d' % (mj, mn))
Exception: Unexpected TLS version 4 0

and when I try to use sudo or su, I get this message:

[sudo] password for alonp: 
sudo: account validation failure, is your account locked?
sudo: a password is required

The thing is is that when prompted for my password through the GUI (for example, in the settings window) My password works, but it doesn’t work in the terminal. It would help me if I could figure out a way to launch gedit from the GUI as an admin maybe then I could revert the changes that I made

in the file explorer, at the top left, in the drop menu near the home folder, there’s an option “open as administrator”. from there I edited the files.
