Vscode not loading terminal when connecting to Droplet via SSH

I’ve been working via SSH on this Droplet for 2 years no problem. A few days ago I connect from vscode and the terminal is not loading. I’m connected and can work but no terminal opens, and the + does nothing.

I logged to de DO dashboard and there was an update for the console, which I installed. Don’t know if that change is related to the problem.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this? :(

Hello there,

If you can connect to the droplet using an ssh-agent then the issue is most probably within the VSCode. Have you recently updated VSCode or made changes to the ssh-config?
