Can't access SSH after upgrade my droplet

Ubuntu 16.04 Initial Server Setup

Before I upgrade my droplet, I can access SSH. After I upgrade, I couldn’t connect to SSH

ssh: connect to host IP ADDRESS port 22: Connection refused

My ufw firewall is active, I tried to disable, reset, and enable back my 80,443,22. But none of them works. I reset my droplet password and tried again, but doesn’t work. I only can access through console in Digital ocean.
