I did a fresh install of Parrot-security-4.11_amd64.iso yesterday. When launching Synaptic, it asks for the root password, not the sudoer password. Someone on the Facebook Parrot OS (Official Group) is reporting the same issue. I had to create a password for root as the Calamares installer didn’t ask for one.
