Bug Description

While working on LP:#1968873 , it was mentioned that the passwordauthentication config option from sshd is not correctly set.
Using a sshd_config.d/ snippet instead of directly modifying /etc/ssh/sshd_config does not take into account that the openssh-server package does have a debconf config & template :

$ sudo debconf-show openssh-server
* openssh-server/password-authentication: true
  openssh-server/permit-root-login: true

So instead of using a config snippet, /etc/ssh/sshd_config and the debconf database needs to be modified .
