by default, ubuntu does not have a password for root, you (being a sudoer) has to assign one, i.e. when logged in as you:
sudo passwd root
> give your password
> enter a new password for root
> retype the password for root.
only then can you log in as root. Until then, you have to do everything via sudo.
