Unable to restore droplet. It asks for SSH key even after providing one

  1. I am importing a droplet snapshot sent to me by a client, I chose SSH key as the auth method.

  2. I went ahead to create the SSH key, pasted the pub key in the appropriate box, and selected it

  3. The “create droplet” is still grayed out, with “To create Droplets that use SSH key authentication. you must select at least one key”

  4. I tried password as well and got the same message (about passwords)
