This is a known issue with Dolphin and ECDSA keys. OpenSSH in recent versions have moved to use ECDSA by default over RSA, and this works fine with most implementations that rely on OpenSSH's "known hosts" file. Dolphin's kio_sftp module uses libssh instead of OpenSSH's own libraries, and that library appears to not support ECDSA keys. The workaround is ...

Seems like I found the solution to my own question: Dolphin obviously ignores the [Default Applications] in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list but uses [Added Associations] in the same file. So the quick way how to change multiple file associations in Dolphin would be to copy all the lines under [Default Applications] (set with xdg-mime) and paste ...

ffmpegthumbs 4:15.12.3-0ubuntu1 is buggy and unpacks ffmpegthumbs.so to the wrong location.

There are several caveats in what you tried to do. I already mentioned the danger introduced by your approach: Next time nautilus is going to be updated, your dolphin gets overwritten (as your link points there). Same goes for gnome-terminal.
