I had the same issue, some time back.  Here's the fix I used:

cp -r ~/.gnupg ~/gpgOLD
gpg --export-ownertrust > ~/gpgOLD/otrust.txt
mkdir ~/gpgNEW
chmod 700 ~/gpgNEW
export GNUPGHOME=~/gpgNEW
gpg --import gpgOLD/pubring.gpg
gpg --import gpgOLD/secring.gpg
gpg --import-ownertrust ~/gpgOLD/otrust.txt

cd ~/.gnupg
gpg --export-ownertrust >otrust.lst
cp pubring.gpg publickeys
gpg2 --import-options import-local-sigs --import publickeys
gpg2 --import-ownertrust otrust.lst

That should do the trick.
