When I run the command

apt-cache search network-manager | grep sstp

It comes up blank. I can find pptp and openvpn, but not sstp.

Have the relevant sstp packages been removed?

[edit] - This worked for me

I ran the commands below

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eivnaes/network-manager-sstp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install network-manager-sstp
sudo apt-get install sstp-client

I then opened network connections with

nm-connection-editor

and I was able to set up a VPN from there.

The following worked on 16.04 LTS: I ran the commands below

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eivnaes/network-manager-sstp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install network-manager-sstp
sudo apt-get install sstp-client

I then opened network connections with

nm-connection-editor

and I was able to set up a VPN from there.

On MY sydtem (YMMV) I did locate sstp, and found /usr/share/nmap/scripts/sstp-discover.nse, which says in part,

Check if the Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol is supported. This is
accomplished by trying to establish the HTTPS layer which is used to
carry SSTP traffic as described in:

Current SSTP server implementations:
    - Microsoft Windows (Server 2008/Server 2012)
    - MikroTik RouterOS
    - SEIL (http://www.seil.jp)

Simply, this is a soulution (this enables gui interface):

sudo apt install network-manager-sstp-gnome
