This was caused by an error in the configuration of my Postgres DB Server .
This is solved by Changing the password_encryption parameter in postgressql.conf

Edit postgresql.conf and change the parameter to

password_encryption = md5


Hey @ewafula, what version of postgresql are you running. Asking because we had the same issue documented, but with version 14. If on a different version and running into the same, it is worth updating the known issue.

I’m running ver. 14.
Thank you
