Windows 8 : Cannot change password

Hello everyone,

I want to change my user password on Windows 8, so I went to Settings>>Change PC Settings>>Users>>Change your password and i get this message : Something went wrong. Try signing out of your PC and then signing back in.

I tried signing out and back in many times. I also restarted my PC a couple of times, but this message won't disappear.

Any suggestions?

PS: My windows are genuine and I am using a Microsoft account.
