FS#431 - Installer: Migration mode: empty root password

Ubuntu doesn’t set any password to root by default, this is a very good idea (ironic), so that the migration mode of the installer works perfectly but when the user want to do anything with root... can’t do anything, cant login, nothing... since there’s no password

Add a verifier of root passwords in the migration/upgrade mode so that will request it if is empty

I will need a sample line of the root file / etc/shadow in order to know how to detect it

This problem looks like to be solved using (at least) the version of the installer: 4.8-20

I need a volonteer for this test to know if really works
