Thank you for the feedback and suggestions. As happens in most open source software, a few updates and weeks later, key regeneration worked just fine. So the error may have been some library mismatch.
Updating the beginner documentation with these debugging suggestions may divert some amateurs like me from bothering the list. I didn't come across these suggestions in my search. In fact, it may be worthwhile to update the code proper to suggest these debugging options when it throws general errors - since it's evident that the information I posted wasn't all that helpful in troubleshooting the problem.
