On a hunch, when this happened to me, I looked at the file
/var/lib/dpkg/info/ssh.template and found an incongruity: the last two
records aren't separated by a blank line. I assume that this means that
debconf believes that they're a single record, and thus chokes and dies.
Adding the line back in made the upgrade work again.
