sftp filezilla cant connect login stopped working after upgrading ubuntu 20
Hi I upgraded to ubuntu 20 and now I can’t connect using filezilla sftp.
I’ve tried a couple things but no luck.
I can connect using SSH like this -
The authenticity of host ‘12.345.67.891 (12.345.67.891)’ can’t be established.
ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:UJ0gg08e0RuTvhrsktQYy70RzO8mM6i9wlYm8oVztHU.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no/[fingerprint])? yes
Warning: Permanently added '12.345.67.891’ (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts.
Connected to 12.345.67.891.
Why doesn’t it let filezilla connect?
I’ve compared the old sshdconfig file with the new sshdconfig post ubuntu upgrade and they are exactly the same.
Here’s a snippet from /var/log/auth.log.. Does this look right?

Please can someone point me in the right direction?
