I don't really know what the problem could be, but the sftp support for gvfs is provided by the gvfs-backends packages, so I'd try to reinstall the package and see if that solves the issue.

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall gvfs-backends
