If you get this error (it can happend due to change in the hardware or software of the remote host, e.g. you replaced a physical computer with a virtual one) while trying to ssh to a known host which you have connected to earlier then the solution is very simple.

Inside your home directory do:

$ cd .ssh
$ rm known_hosts

Now do ssh again and you won’t get any errors.
