Those correlate - the ipa_kpasswd daemon logs these messages when it
sees a password-change request with an internal version number that
doesn't match the version of the protocol that it handles.  The client
gets no reply, and because it's connectionless, it assumes that it was
not able to contact a server.

Are the users who can change their passwords using different client
software (specifically, versions of Kerberos, which supplies the kpasswd
command) compared to the users who can't?

If you can get a packet capture of a client request, we can examine the
first few bytes to check what's triggering the failure.
