Why do I get "Internal server error" when changing password?

I am using Bamboo from my work. When confirming my new password I get to a new page where it says "Internal server error" with the following message:

Caused by: com.atlassian.crowd.exception.OperationFailedException: Error from Crowd server propagated to here via REST API (check the Crowd server logs for details): Passwords are stored in LDAP and are read-only for delegated authentication directory

As I see from logs Bamboo instance uses LDAP server to manage users. LDAP repositories are readonly from Bamboo, so you can't change user settings from Bamboo itself

So is there any solution for this? I asked one of the admins here to change my password and they also get the same error. 

They should do it at LDAP server, not Bamboo UI
