Android refuses to forget wifi login with incorrect password

Huawei phablet/tablet X2 (GEM-702L) with EMUI 4.0, Android version 6.0
-- I am trying to log into a particular wifi network that I previously logged in 2 years ago and am getting "Incorrect Password." Yes, the password has changed. Settings -> Wifi -> choose the particular wifi -> Cancel/Forget/Reconnect: choose Forget -> Scan anew -> choose the particular wifi, am given the options Cancel and Connect, choose Connect -- I am not being prompted for a password, instead, the phone does its thing and comes back saying Saved, Secured, which after another few seconds changes to Incorrect Password. Telling the phone to forget this particular wifi when I am not in reach of it doesn't help. Playing around with cancel and telling the phone 100 times to forget doesn't help, it just does not forget the old, incorrect password, and has never allowed me to input the new password. How can I force the phone to forget the incorrect password?
