OpenSSH errors after updating, best way to fix?

This has been a nagging problem for a while, and I’d love to get it resolved.

I use Clear Linux on a headless Plex server. Last year sometime OpenSSH received an update, and after rebooting, I was attempting to log in via SSH on another computer.

I received this error upon attempting to log in:
kex_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by peer
Connection reset by port 22

Now the only way I am able to resolve this is to plug in a keyboard, blind log in and reboot the OpenSSH service.

I looked around to find some answers but nothing is really tailored for ClearLinux.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Did you:

sudo cp /usr/share/doc/openssh/sshd_config /etc/ssh/

And is it still default, as in unchanged…?

Hello, and thank you for the reply.

Yes, your command provided was completed and left untouched, but the issue persists.

Have you tried to launch openSSH in verbose mode?

ssh -vvv
