Check the top of the manual page for the general usage of the SSH client:

Code:
man ssh
You don't need and should not try to use sudo for this. It runs programs as other users and that won't do anything helpful here. Also, pay attention to where the user name and the hostname go.

Code:
ssh username@hostname
Alternately you can write the same thing like this:

Code:
ssh -l username hostname
Either way, the hostname goes last.

If you do not have a name for the remote machine, then you'll have to use an IP address instead of a hostname.

The short answer is that you get that error because it is not letting you in, but you know that. If you have access to the server through other means, the sever's logs would tell you the specific reason. Do you have access to the server and its logs by other means?

Without such information, it is only possible to guess. Maybe the account on the server is locked. Otherwise, most likely either the user name or password is wrong.

You can get some limited information from running the SSH client in a more verbose mode using the -v option. But you will still need access to the server by other means to either make a valid user or unlock the existing account.

Code:
ssh -v username@hostname
Then look through the output for this section:

Code:
. . .
debug1: Authentications that can continue: . . .
. . .
debug1: No more authentication methods to try.
. . .
However, the server logs are the real place to look.

The extra data shows that the machine is on the same LAN and you probably have physical access to it.

So you'll need to sit down over at the server and look at the SSH logs. If the server is Ubuntu they should be in /var/log/auth.log

Code:
less /var/log/auth.log
Or you can use awk to filter out everthing unrelated.

Code:
awk '$5~/^sshd/' /var/log/auth.log | less
There's not much you can do from the client at this point. The SSH server is doing its job and keeping you out. The question which can only be answered on the server itself is why.

The first thing to check is whether the ssh server (sshd) is running on the target machine.
