You might check the type of encryption used; the default changed at some 
stage.  If you're changing ubuntu versions, this might be the cause...

Can't see why this would affect getting the key, but....

The default *was* aes-cbc-plain

Here's a snippet from my offsite-backup script:

cryptsetup create -c aes-cbc-plain -y $cryptname $devicename
