No auth methods could be used from ssh or git

I've had issues when trying to use ssh or git (which uses ssh) with a key that requires a passphrase to be entered. The key error shown is "No auth methods could be used.". The solution I've discovered is to use opkg to install openssh-client-utils, which then provides the library needed to ask for the passphrase

And the news here is?

The standard set of packages in OpenWrt is designed for small footprint with reduced functionality (busybox, dropbear, etc.).

If you want full functionality of a "normal" Linux PC, you need to install additional packages like you have now done.

Nothing at all. I'm just trying to save the next poor schmuck hours of trying to find an answer to this same error message by posting it to the forum.
