Annoying, yes.  Disastrous, no.  Easiest solution is the one already
discussed, your old key is never going to be accepted again so it is
time to make a new one. Solved.

Second solution is to revert Fedora's new paranoia that will detonate
any old package.  "sudo update-crypto-policies --set LEGACY" and get on
with life for another Fedora release cycle... then the madmen will break
things again.  It is a cryptoweenie thing, break anything more than a
few years old while autistically screeching "but it is INSECUUUURE!"  Be
thankful, as bad as Fedora can be, OpenSSH is worse; when they do the
"INSECUUUUURE!" screeching they eventually remove every line of code
that supported the now insecure crypto so you can't even rebuild from
source to be able to still talk to that old box in a corner.
