I am trying to connect to remote sftp server over ssh with JSch (0.1.44-1) but during "session.connect();" I am getting this exception:

There are a couple of places that SSH clients and servers try and agree on a common implementation. Two I know of are encryption and compression. The server and client produce a list of available options and then the best available option in both lists is chosen.
If there is no acceptable option in the lists then it fails with the error you got. I'm guessing from the debug output here but it looks like the only server options for encryption are "aes256-cbc hmac-md5 none".
JSch doesn't do hmac-md5 and aes256-cbc is disabled because of your Java policy files. Two things you could try are...
The first is ideal if you have access to the server (trust me aes128-cbc is plenty of encryption), but the second is easy enough to quickly test out the theory.
