This isn't a question but instead a tutorial to install the SSH feature on elementary os. When I looked at forms it told me just to do

sudo apt-get install openssh-server

but then I got an error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 openssh-server : Depends: libssl1.0.0 (>= 1.0.2) but it is not going to be installed
                  Recommends: ssh-import-id but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

so what you actually have to do is enter these 2 commands in order

sudo apt-get install ssh-import-id
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

then restart your machine

no need for OpenSSH-server - ssh-import-id pulls it as a dependency.
