[Bug 1579978] Re: upgrade to 1:7.2p2-4ubuntu1 fails on ubuntu server

I tried purging and reinstalling openssh-server, but that failed again
with the same error.
I then rebooted the machine and was able to then successfully run apt-
get -f install to fix the package installation. Subsequently re-
installing the package worked without a problem.
Perhaps there was a temporary file causing a problem somewhere, which
was automatically cleaned out on reboot? Something leftover from the
upgrade to xenial?
