You will have to authenticate to keystone using your admin_token from your keystone.conf file.

keystone --os-token $ADMIN_TOKEN --os-service-endpoint http://controller:35357/v2.0 user-password-update --pass $PASSWORD admin

You'll need to do it through the command line. The steps provided will let you update the password for the admin user. You have to elevate above the admin user to set the password for it which is why you will use the admin_token from keystone.conf and use the service endpoint.
