I ran into this, there was a post bout it a little while back. It seems that 
you can modify ipapython/ to revert the version number for enrolment, 
then revert it. with no ill effects.

 My script looks like:

#revert reported version of ipapython so keys will upload properly (backup 
first tho)
cp /usr/share/pyshared/ipapython/ 
sed -i "s/API_VERSION=.*/API_VERSION=u'2.49'/g" 

# install!
ipa-client-install -d -U --enable-dns-updates --hostname=$FQDN --mkhomedir 

#revert change to the ipapython version back again
#rm -f /usr/share/pyshared/ipapython/ && mv 

Kind regards,

Will Sheldon

 Another day another issue it seems :)

so  I'm trying to set up an ubunutu client I get almost all the way through the 
install and it fails with a version error. Ive hear this is a known bug and 
there is a fix out there. although Im not sure how to apply the fix or get the 
older client install.

my error is as follows:

Adding SSH public key from /etc/ssh/
Adding SSH public key from /etc/ssh/
Adding SSH public key from /etc/ssh/
