I think that this prompt comes from Tramp sending "unset correct" or
"unset autocorrect".  Could you log in to the remote host using ssh,
then type those two commands to see what happens?

The other possibility is that the prompt comes from the following
strange-looking command line:

exec env 'ENV=' 'PS1=$ ' /bin/sh

Please try the above command, as well, with the exact placing of
single quotes and spaces as shown above.  I know it looks weird.  But
it is actually needed on some systems.

Which shell are you running on the remote host?  ("echo $SHELL" and
"echo $shell" might provide useful info after logging in with ssh.)
