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

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
OpenSSH7.6p1 Ubuntu-4ubuntu0.5, OpenSSL 1.0.2n 7 Dec 2017

any ideas or suggestions appreciated
