Check the following:

ls -la /home/<USER>/.ssh
ls -la /home

Does the .ssh folder have permissions 700 and files within 600?

Do you have "StrictModes yes" in your sshd_conf file? If so, then the
server will ignore the keys in the .ssh sub-directory if the home
directory is writeable by anyone other than the Owner.
