Is there some kind of terminal access without needing ssh or telnet?

One can see that pts/0 has been created and used.

So, it seems that pts/0 has correctly been allocated.
But in both cases (ssh and telnet), there's a problem. Since it
happens also with telnet, I doubt there's any problem with sshd.
Perhaps a bug related to the (pseudo-)ttys.
Look at /var/log/messages on the remote machine to see if there is
any error message. Just in case...
You can also search Google for "Connection closed by foreign host".
there was a recent bug affecting Raspberry Pi (ARM). Your machine is
also ARM-based. It might be related...
