I am aware this has been mentioned before, however I am experiencing this issue at the moment. I get this error message every few seconds (random, not a repeating interval) in one of my logins, while others are fine. This issue is also observed by nearly all of our lab members. This happens sporadically, sometimes it will be fine for days, and once in a while one of my ssh logins will continuously spew out this error message, while other simultaneously active logins will be fine. This happens when connected with -X or -Y and authenticated via a key or password. Also seems to be OS independent since I have observed this using ssh on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04), Mac OS (big sur), and Windows 10.
Attached is a screenshot.
Thank you very much for your help and investigation. My current solution to the issue is to close the ssh connection with the error message and open up a new connection.
The general problem is that this is nigh on impossile to reproduce. It happens randomly so I am not suprised you fail to reproduce the error.
To be exact, since I don’t know what you mean by distict, these are separate terminal windows, which have separately logged in with ssh -Y, from the same client machine, with the same ips.
Unfortunately, I don’t exactly know/understand what this means, so I cannot answer the question.
I am fairly certain that this has nothing to do with bashrc, as David and others in our lab have experienced this problem with “empty” bashrcs. Also, this used to happen to me when my bashrc was practically blank.
I will try this option, but it may be weeks before I can confirm this has an effect, since the issue is random.
This happens to me when a single ssh connection is active as well, i.e. the error is not only triggered with multiple connections. I have observed the problem in connections from multiple networks, including unige, and multiple OSes.
I am not 100% sure, but I believe I have tried this in the past and it did not resolve the issue.
This just happened now, although no terminal flooding (only one line).
I have one single terminal open, so only one SSH connection, running from home (not from UniGE network). The connection had been active for 1-2 hours when the message arrived. It is not my first SSH connection of the day, however, but at no time today did I have two parallel SSH.
I’m connecting from Ubuntu 18.04.05 if that is relevant.
