ubuntu stuck on login page – can’t login with keyboard

I don’t know why but my ubuntu session got stuck at the login page suddenly and I can’t ge through any longer. When starting the VM, i get the following screen :

enter image description here

I’ve tried CTRL+ALT+F1 and CTRL+ALT+F7 but no luck… my keyboard and mouse aren’t working. I’ve also tried CTRL+ALT+F3 and ran

sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop

sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-session

but still the same.

enter image description here

I’m wondering what’s wrong and what I can do. If ever it is not possible to recover my session, is there a way to create another VM with the disk of this one… i’d hate to loose everything.
