How to fix ssh_dispatch_run_fatal?

ssh_dispatch_run_fatal: Connection to XXX port 22: invalid argument

Solution

The simplest solution is to delete file /etc/ssh/moduli on the Linux 6 system serving as sshd backend.

The same workaround is applicable for other Linux 8 FIPS clients connecting to non-FIPS servers using this key exchange method.
