Can you please run the following commands as it would appear that UFW is blocking the connections:

sudo ufw allow ssh
sudo ufw allow 22

If ssh is configured on port different from 22, please adjust he second command accordingly. Now try to ssh again and see if it’s working

If this is still not working you can temporary disable ufw and give it another try:

sudo ufw disable

Let me know how it goes.
