You can try "sudo -i" to see whether you can get (temporary) root shell, and from there "passwd root" to re-set root password.

If you can't do that - my recommendation is to start fresh, and keep notes on passwords. And at least initially, don't encrypt the root / home volumes, this will make eventual recovery much easier.
