​Filezilla is still strict about it, so it's likely that the ciphers or
client certificates need bringing up to date​. The exact error should be
visible in Filezilla's connection log, but should also have been fixed in
15.10 since release so an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and a restart
of sshd should fix it.
