PPA migrator utility fails with error:

~# ppa-transfer check config.ini 
[ERROR] | Error while checking connection settings: 'Failed to connect to Plesk to '' url: Plesk error [1029]: Authentification method is not specified'.


Configuration file /etc/ppa-migrator/config.ini is not well-formed.


SSH authentication section should contain thee parameters, an example below:

ssh-username: root
ssh-auth-type: password
ssh-password: pass123

The error above may occur if one of these parameters is empty in the /etc/ppa-migrator/config.ini file, please make sure that all the parameter are set, use command below to check:

~# grep -v '#' /etc/ppa-migrator/config.ini | egrep "ssh-username|ssh-auth-type|ssh-password|ssh-key" --colour
