Description

The ssh authentication "keyboard-interactive" method fails on 2.3.2 and 2.4

This is due to the use of UsePAM no globally in sshd_config

keyboard-interactive is more secure than plain password authentication and is preferable for environments where using only key-based authentication is impractical.

Moving UsePAM no to the code block for key-based only auth works for both cases and has the intended net effect.

To me, I have a commit pending.

I pushed a fix as stated. Works fine with and without key-based auth. Needs more testing once it hits snaps.
