If you are not able to connect via SFTP to your server, please make sure the sftp-server binary is properly configured in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.

Find the correct path to the sftp-executable
$ find / -name sftp-server
/usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server

Replace the sftp configuration in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
# Replace this
Subsystem /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server
# With the path found at setp 1.
Subsystem /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server

Restart your sshd server
systemctl restart sshd
