Dear Muhammad,
the old version of GeoNode/GeoServer used an obsolete authentication method
which therefore is no more available on the new GeoServer versions.

security/config.xml file on your geoserver data directory.

You should compare the security folder with the one provided with


Also you should finalize your GeoNode configuration with OAuth2 by
following the guidelines here


Also this doc, nevertheless it is a bit outdated, could be useful in order
to make some comparison between old configuration files and new ones
