If you're getting the following error in MySQL Workbench after upgrading ssh, don't worry, there's a fix.

SSHException: Incompatible ssh peer (no acceptable kex algorithm)
[INF][     SSH tunnel]: TunnelManager.wait_connection authentication error: Authentication error, unhandled exception caught in tunnel manager, please refer to logs for details
[ERR][     SSH tunnel]: Authentication error opening SSH tunnel: Authentication error, unhandled exception caught in tunnel manager, please refer to logs for details

Download python-ecsda and paramiko

Install them to MySQL\MySQL Workbench 6.3 CE\python\site-packages

Reload Workbench - this worked for me, I hope it'll work for you too.
