Did you solve it? I'm facing exactly the same issue (also on Debian Jessie amd64)...
I solved this issue following these steps, working into the console in front of a local machine:
- if not yet happen create an SSH key (ssh-keygen -t rsa, without password, press ENTER several times), for root or for the local account running broctl
- copy or add the public key (~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub) to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
- open SSH connections to your local machine:
and ssh ::1
You shouldn’t get a password request due to authorized_keys. Important because without both (IPv4 and IPv6) connections I couldn’t solve the problem. Maybe it depends on the entry in known_hosts?
Now broctl -> install or broctl -> deploy should work.
