I'm trying to use the manual provider to setup a juju environment on a remote server; when I try juju bootstrap I get:

ERROR initialising SSH storage failed: failed to create storage dir: subprocess encountered error code 255 (Permission denied (publickey).)

I've generated my config per the docs for manual provider (https://juju.ubuntu.com/docs/config-manual.html) and I have ssh access on the machine in question (e.g. the private key I have is valid).

I have no idea what's blocking here; I get the same message running bootstrap verbosely.
