create droplet ssh not connecting

My droplet creation script, which worked for months, then I didn’t need it till today. It proceeds through droplet creation, I am using ssh connection to verify that the droplet is ready to work:

while [[ $ssh_ready != 0 ]] ; do sleep 5 ssh_ready=$(ssh -vvv -o BatchMode=yes -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o ConnectTimeout=5 root@$new_droplet_ip echo ‘0’) echo “Trying again…” echo $ssh_ready done

today after a long break ( including a move so new network ) I get :

++ ssh -vvvv -o BatchMode=yes -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o ConnectTimeout=5 root@ echo 0 OpenSSH_7.6p1 Ubuntu-4ubuntu0.5, OpenSSL 1.0.2n 7 Dec 2017 debug1: Reading configuration data /home/jeff/.ssh/config debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug2: resolving “” port 22 debug2: ssh_connect_direct: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to [] port 22. debug2: fd 3 setting O_NONBLOCK

any ideas or suggestions appreciated
