class CustomUserChangeForm(UserChangeForm):

    class Meta:
        model = NewUser
        fields = ('first_name','email',)

How to fix this problem?

Your model has:

    user_name = models.CharField(max_length=150, unique=True,blank=True)

unique=True means “define a unique constraint for this field”: Model field reference | Django documentation | Django

@NobinPegasus Did you ever manage to solve this?? I have the same problem.

If you are getting a Unique constraint failed error, I would suggest you open up a new topic for this discussion, along with providing all the relevent details.
