cacerts password missing

I inherited a system and I need to do some work on cacerts (import some certificates). So first thing I want to do is change password from the default "changeit"
bash-3.00# /usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.5.0/jre/bin/keytool -storepasswd -keystore /usr/jdk/instances/jdk1.5.0/jre/lib/security/cacerts -new newpassword
Enter keystore password: changeit
: Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect
...so it looks like the password isn't "changeit". If I try with a blank password:
Enter keystore password: keytool error: java.lang.NullPointerException
...I get the NPE above. So...does that mean the password has already been changed? If so, is there a way for me to "override" what is already there?

I believe the password is only used to verify integrity for trusted certificates. So if you try some variant on the following command
keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore cacerts -destkeystore newcacerts
you can create a new keystore and have a chance to add a password for integrity checking.
Nice to meet you.
It is sorta covered in the
