I was getting this error for awhile when trying to use an authentication key in Putty to connect to an Ubuntu Server machine:
Server refused our key.
Long story short, the problem lies within my home directory being encrypted when I’m not logged in. Read below for further explanation.
The solution is to move the authorized_keys file location outside the home folder so the SSH daemon can access it even when you’re not logged in:
Automatic home directory encryption is an option when installing Ubuntu systems (both desktop and server), and I recommend using it. I like knowing that, if I’m not logged in, my home directory is encrypted. However, this means that any server or daemon that requires access to a file or folders in your home directory will fail if you’re not logged in. Keep that in mind.
