Failed to start accounts-daemon.service - Accounts Service

I am getting a “[FAILED] Failed to start accounts-daemon.service - Accounts Service.” When trying to sign into my account or the root account. It only stays up on the screen for a second before kicking me back to the login screen. When using the recover option in grub it says “sulogin: failed to execute /bin/bash: Permission denied sulogin: failed to execute /bin/sh: Permission denied”.

Any suggestions or help anyone can provide?

Edit: I am using the Cinnamon spin

Is this after a new installation, or on a system that was working? If the latter, can you think of anything that might have happened in the time between when it was working and when this problem started

It was a system that was already working. All I did that could have made any changes was just apply any updates that were available last night (03/07/2023 around 1830 ish). I update my system usually every night.
