I have a development box that I can test things on and was able to
uninstall openssh-askpass and everything seems to work just fine.  From
what I can tell askpass is there so openssh can use it to ask for a pass
phrase.  This is on a headless machine so I don't think that will cause me
any problems.  Does anyone know of any issues that may arise from
uninstalling this?  It is a LAMP system.

This is a production environment so I would rather fix the issue but I am
not sure how to go about satisfying the dependencies.  Is there something
out there you are aware of that can point me in the right direction?
