It's happened to me too. Here is the relevant snip from
The default for this setting has been changed from Yes to No,
for security reasons. Simply switch it back on in
/etc/ssh/sshd_config if you need to log in as root, although I
would recommend that you use real usernames for remote logins,
and then use su, or perhaps preferably sudo, to become root.
This allows you to determine which of the sysadmins it is that
is logged in as root, if needed, and encourages sysadmins not
to be root at all times"
