Hello,

I've been using GnuPG 2.0.9 for several months without any problems. I decided I wanted to edit my key, but I keep encountering the message, "Need the secret key to do this." without being prompted to provide it.

for instance:
Code:
$ gpg --edit-key MyID
I get my key info, and the new prompt 'command>' but I cannot seem to do anything here. for instance:
Code:
Command> adduid
Need the secret key to do this.

Command> toggle
Need the secret key to do this.
Similarly, when I try to create a revocation certificate:
Code:
$ gpg --output revoke.asc --gen-revoke MyID
gpg: secret key "MyID" not found: Unknown system error
however if I enter
Code:
$ gpg --list-keys
, my key information is provided without error. I also have been regularly encrypting and decrypting files with it.


Some more info:
Code:
$ gpg-agent
gpg-agent: gpg-agent running and available

$ which gpg
/usr/bin/gpg

$ which gpg2
/usr/bin/gpg2

$ gpg --version
