    Same here, it happened to me last month. I think in that update ssh port was upgraded, but this is not possible. Luckily I had recent backup so restored it and then changed the ssh port. Now it's fine :)

    Problem solved by purging openssh-server and reinstalling it. (via the web interface console).

    Phew. Disaster averted. At least this wasn't an rm -rf /
