XPS 13 Ubuntu password

Can anyone help me, I've just taken delivery of my XPS 13 (2015) with Ubuntu preinstalled.  When I try to install software through the terminal it asks for "password for oem" which I don't have. The oem account was presumably set up during installation and it has not been supplied with the device. Is this usual? I'm hoping they use a standard password that someone will be able to tell me. If not how do I get the password?

I had it also, because the installation process broke in the middle, after I selected a backup option on the installation GUI. I just re-installed using the "Factory reset".
