Question

SSH is not working anymore

I for the life of me cannot figure out the issue. journalctl -xe says

Failed to start OpenBSD Secure Shell service
Unit ssh.service failed

ssh.service: Unit entered failed state.
ssh.service: Failed with result 'start-l'

also it says no such file or directory for bin/sshd

Hi

Try this at the shell to see if the config has any error(s):

sudo sshd -T
