If there is a problem with known hosts, the error message indicates that the
problem would be in the known hosts file of the machine being connected to,
and the solution, in most cases, would be to use a previously unused IP
address from the same subnetwork to attempt a login.

If you're using DHCP or if you've upgraded the OS on the box you're trying
to use for the login, that could be the problem.
