Cause:

If any user has an associated certificate then the user must use certificate authentication to access policy manager. A user ID and password will not be accepted.

Resolution:

To resolve the issue you will need to lookup the problem user in the identity provider and revoke his/her certificate.  Password authentication will then work.
