Could an update to Ubuntu have changed how the terminal clipboard works? In that it doesn’t. Nothing I do will insert from the clipboard - right click always used to, shift ins, ctrl v, i, nothing works now.

Copy and pasting would be the responsibility of Putty not the server.

Are you able to copy/paste outside of putty?
