The password for one of our user names wasn’t allowing us to login. We changed the password, but had the issue again. In attempt to fix this I reset the SSH. Now ssh will not reinstall.
When trying to re-install the server we get the following errors
“Openssh-server” has no installation candidate" and "Package openssh-server is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean the the package is missing, has been obsolete , or is only available from another source.
E: Unable to locate package ssh E: Package 'openssh-server" has no installation candidate

if you use ubuntu 16.04 or debian jessie OS than double check your sourcelist
step 1 Debian sourcelist sourcelist
ubuntu 1604 xenial sourcelist
step 2 after you can update your repo list and install openssh-server
if you any problems with apt-get update than
and goto step 2 and run the commands again
Dont forget to stay over the droplet console while reinstall your ssh server.
Sorry you’re having trouble. Did you first run
apt-get updatebefore attempting to install openssh-server?
