    Why update?  Update is very conservative.  Update will not pull in new
packages, only update existing packages.  If an update requires a new
package then apt-get keeps the package back.

    However, if you tell apt-get to explicitly install a package it will
install the latest version, pulling in any dependencies.  Since this is
in response to a specific vulnerability then tell apt-get exactly what
you want it to do.

apt-get install openssh-client openssh-server

    That should do the trick unless there is something else amiss.
