Connection closed and no route to host

Hi there,

I’ve been working through ssh all morning and had no problems. Suddenly this:

Connection to closed by remote host.
Connection to closed.

When I try to re-connect, I get this:

roro@roro-SATELLITE-P50-C:~$ ssh ubuntu@
ssh: connect to host port 22: No route to host

Is this a problem at my end or your end?


Just caught up with the message that instances are being shelved today - have unshelved!

Hi Rosalind,

In case such as yours please open and check if your VM is not is state “shelved”. If so, please unshelve it, wait for 2-3 minutes and try to log in again.



Hi Maciej,

Thanks for the info! I heard about the unshelving shortly after I posted.

Everything is back now - but am still having problems with Lubuntu. It says “Something went wrong, connection closed” as it did before (despite the fact I can use ssh again, no problem). Any ideas?


Could you try open it again, please?

Still no luck, I’m afraid.

Could you provide more details? When do you see this message? After providing username and password?

The message appears in the bar at the top, as soon as I follow the link from my GVL dashboard. I am not prompted to enter username and password.


We suspect that this issue is caused by accidentally deleting some files from your home directory. Do you remember such circumstances?

The easiest method to resolve this problem is to create new GLV machine, I’m afraid. Could be this solution possible in your case?
