    There is no cPanel user named root.

    root user can login to WHM, and from there, if the proper settings enabled in Tweak Settings, access a cPanel users account of course. But, you would have no cPanel end user named root with his own account . It seems to me that's what you've tried to do here.

    Can you login as a normal user into a cPanel account?
    Can you login to WHM as root user?
