Fedoraproject ssh key error

I’m try to upload a new ssh key to my account on the fedoraproject site and keep getting the following error

Error!

The following error(s) have occurred with your request:

  • gpg_keyid: Error - Invalid character in GPG key id: t
    This same error occurs with any key I try even though they work fine on any other machine and on aws and digital ocean.
    Any ideas???

Mmm.
You are trying to upload the SSH key, but the error is related to GPG… Try to check better where you are trying to upload the key.

Yes I know.
but the file I’m trying to upload is fedoraproject_rsa.pub generated with ssh-keygen.
I’ve logged into https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/user/view/tjcarol
and I’m trying upload it with the edit my accounts page.
But keep getting that same error…

You filled the GPG Key ID field with your email, so this is not a valid key id (indeed it starts with t).
Then the error you are getting could be related to that, and not to the SSH key you are trying to upload. Try to delete the GPG Key ID field.

Still no go.
I removed the comment field
with ssh-keygen -c -f fedoraproject_rsa
and I still get the same error.
gpg_keyid: Error - Invalid character in GPG key id: t

Sorry. I mean, try to delete the GPG Key ID field in the FAS web page.
