How can I add ssh-key to my user account in a new droplet?
I followed this [DO GUIDE](https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-16-04
I created a user account and gave it
But when I try to copy my ssh keys using
ssh-copy-id user@address, I get the following error:
/usr/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: attempting to log in with the new key(s), to filter out any that are already installed /usr/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: 1 key(s) remain to be installed -- if you are prompted now it is to install the new keys Permission denied (publickey).
This used to work before. What is the solution?
