the other day i was signing into my personal user account, and it told me
that something was wrong with the account so it would give me a temporary
account until the problem was fixed. It didnt tell me what the problem was,
so i dont know how to fix it or when I will be able to access my original
account.

Hi,

Probably a corrupted account. Create a new one, copy the old user data to
it. Then delete the old account.

Note that one step not listed in the article is that after creating the
destination profile you must log into it once first to create the necessary
file structure before you do the copy procedure.
