What OS is running on the other system?
Have you upgraded anything on Linux recently? I ask because I had
exactly this problem on my BSD systems, and it turned out that the
default key type had changed from DSA to RSA.
That fits with the way that SSH works. If the first connection method
it tries (keys in this case) fails, it tries the next method (password
in this case).
Yes. In my case, all the hosts held public DSA keys, and all the clients
were trying DSA first.
When I upgraded a client, it started trying RSA first, so complained
about the fingerprint and dropped back to passwords.
Easy to fix; I just issued RSA public keys.
