I updated my one remaining Kubuntu machine this morning with the latest
Now I can no longer ssh into the machine. shhd worked fine prior applying
Errors during startup no longer seem to be written to /var/log/messages; where
do I go to find some kind of indication as to why sshd didn't start?
I tried, in desperation, logging in at the console (which is very inconvenient
-- this machine has, for years, been accessed almost always by ssh) and
executing /usr/sbin/sshd. But that gave me this error message:
Missing privilege separation directory: /var/run/sshd
In 15+ years of running Linux, I've never seen a message like that before.
Obviously, something bad happened (silently!!) while applying the update. But
I have no idea how to move forward.
