comment What is the default idle timeout for OpenSSH?
Correct me if wrong, but if there was no firewall in between me and the machine (w/ default configs), then I'd never be disconnected? I know our firewall drops idle TCP connections after 60 minutes, so that's where the closing idle connections is happening. I just wanted to check and see if OpenSSH itself explicitly closes sessions. I think the answer is No, openssh does not explicitly close idle connections, but firewalls typically do. The settings mentioned in your answer actually help to persist the connection or to properly terminate the session if it sees it's been dropped.

comment Packages skipped because of dependency problems:
thanks, can you run it again without --skip-broken? I see it's still in your command. Also, what distro and version are you running?
