Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs#When%20not%20to%20file%20a%20bug.

This happens because of timeouts. You may have dropped your internet connection slightly. However, this is normally caused by the remote system being told after 30min an idle connection should be terminated. Check out /etc/ssh/sshd_config on the remote system.

Can you help with this problem?
