Possibly you have to add yourself to the sudoers file: it's in
/etc/sudoers -- best edit it (as root) with visudo.
Make sure there is an entry (perhaps there is one) like
%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
(that means that users belonging to the sudo group may do everything
can do; you can refine permissions if you want)
Then add yourself to the sudo group. As root, do
adduser <yourself> sudo
You'll need to login again for the changes to take effect.
