Yes, sorry. I have no way to fix this properly because it happens in
"prerm upgrade", before the new version gets to do anything. I
documented it in the changelog, though, and it only affects upgrades
from one version that was in unstable for less than a day:
openssh (1:7.2p2-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Don't stop the ssh-session-cleanup service on upgrade (closes: #832155).
This may cause SSH sessions to be killed on upgrade to *this* version if
you had previously installed 1:7.2p2-6. Sorry! If your session is
killed, you can recover using "dpkg --unpack" on this openssh-server
.deb, followed by "dpkg --configure -a".
* Recommend libpam-systemd from openssh-server. It's a much better
solution than the above for systemd users, but I'm wary of depending on
it in case I cause an assortment of exciting dependency problems on
upgrade for non-systemd users.
