ssh dying constantly

Have you tried different interfaces (WLAN, Ethernet-over-USB...)? If so,
does the problem occur regardless of the interface in question? If not,
which interface are you using right now?
Of course, you can always use the nohup command to prevent apt from dying
with the ssh connection.

Best regards
