Hi, the case was similar with my account. After much frustration and in the state hopelessness, something just worked out to my surprise.
1. Go to Instagram login page from the Browser. (Use the default browser provided for android and not browsers like UC Browser)
2. From the login page, insert your username and in the password section, click the ‘forgot’ password. They will ask you to fill up the incomplete contact number of yours (for Example- 0934250__67). After which they will send a message with a code. Enter the code in the missing blank.
3. A link will be sent to your email address for resetting your password. After logging in with your new password, click the pop up ‘Go to App’.
4. Just login with your new password. It worked for me.
