Thank you Carlos. I added sudo later on and I was able to make changes. However, the installation is not sending e-mail yet. I used the external email service provider "Sendgrid" following the tutorial from this from google cloud on this link https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/tutorials/sending-mail/using-sendgrid
~$ echo 'Test passed.' | mail -s Test-Email EMAIL@EXAMPLE.COM
~$ tail -n 5 /var/log/syslog

Not too sure why the password failed
I have used the APIkey and the password generated on sendgrid but it does not work. I generated 3 different ones just to see. Perhaps I am using the wrong pair.
Kindly help with this.
