Do you have a good reason to still be using the RSAAuthentication
option?  It's protocol 1 only, which has been obsolete for a decade or
so, and your -vv transcript shows that you're using protocol 2 so
RSAAuthentication cannot possibly work.  Since you're communicating with
a server version that is substantially less than a decade old, there
should be no reason to try to use protocol 1 with it.  The protocol 2
equivalent is PubkeyAuthentication.

You will of course need to make sure that you aren't using an RSA1 key
(ssh-keygen -t rsa1 vs. -t rsa).
