Are you running 4.2? SSH has been disabled by default with retro pie 4.2.

See here. https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/ssh

I'm sure this thread is dead but I wanted to add my 2c. After a few hours of troubleshooting I had to reinstall RetroPie.

I think the error was caused by doing too many things at once when configuring the OS to behave the way I wanted it; changing multiple settings and transferring ROMs before rebooting.

After a fresh install I did everything one at a time and ran into no issues.
