I do not believe that it is damaged.  I have tried this out three times now 
(deleting the key files between each attempt).

Are you sure the ssh public key file is not damaged? The following sequence of 
commands works for me (verified now):

[root@vm-154 tbabej]# ssh-keygen

Generating public/private rsa key pair.

Enter file in which to save the key (/root/.ssh/id_rsa): /home/tbabej/test_rsa


[root@vm-154 tbabej]# ipa user-mod admin --sshpubkey "$(cat test_rsa.pub)"
