I can't even paste a
b. I am trying to upgrade to Ubuntu 15.04 but I need to delete some files in the /boot directory. When I
cd /oot I can't type a
b. So, I thought, I will list the files in the

I recently added some lines to the
/etc/inputrc file in order to get better tab auto-completion:
set completion-ignore-case on set show-all-if-ambiguous on TAB: menu-complete bind TAB:menu-complete
When I ssh into my ubuntu server I can't type the letter "b". I can however type a capital "B" using either shift keys.
I'm using a MacBook Pro with Retina display from 2012, and I'm ssh-ing into a custom built ubuntu box. It is here that I can't type a lower case "b".
I have restarted the server and yet I still can't type a "b". Every other letter is fine.
It hasn't done that before, I've had the server up and running for about two years and haven't come across an issue like this before. I also haven't done anything notable to cause it to do that.
At first I thought the keyboard was a little sticky but when I closed the connection it works fine. I've restarted the server, ssh'd back in and the "b" key stops working again.
I've tried my bluetooth keyboard and still no luck.
Could this be something that is a rule in a .profile or .bashrc file or something similar? A setting to not allow certain characters.
When I try to type the letter "b" I get the terminal bell sound as if it is not allowed.
