You can either add fox to the sudoers file (using "visudo") or you can
use "su" to become root after you have logged in as fox.

OK, it fails for a normal user as well. I agree with Bob Proulx that we
really need to see your /etc/ssh/sshd_config now. At the very least I
would like to have a look at the output of:

grep sftp /etc/ssh/sshd_config

N="$(awk '/sftp/{print $3}' /etc/ssh/sshd_config)"; file "$N"; ls -l "$N"

dpkg -l {l,opens}sh-server | awk '/^[^D|+]/{print $1,$2,$3}'

(All three commands should be run on the Debian server.)
