linux ubuntu git clone failing

When running our job in a linux ubuntu BYOC instance the git clone process fails saying:

ssh: connect to host 9uc40dy5rtd3opde port 22: Connection refused

when I run the build, the .ssh/config file has an updated modified timestamp, but no actual changes were made to the file. I would expect to see:

Host 9uc40dy5rtd3opde
IdentifyFile ~/.ssh/9uc40dy5rtd3opde_id_rsa

But it isn't there. As a result the git clone is failing. I don't see the ~/.ssh/9uc40dy5rtd3opde_id_rsa file either. I am not sure what I am doing wrong to cause the build to error. I am running the same job on a Windows BYOC at the same time and it works without issue.

    I forgot to mention, the files and directories are all owned by the appveyor user and group, but it seems to be a permissions issue due to how it isn't actually writing files.

    Could you please take a look if there is something in AppVeyor Build Agent log?

    journalctl -u appveyor-build-agent

    May I ask you to share the configuration of your Build Cloud? Also, appveyor.yml of the project and build log may shed some light.
