Hi Charles,

looks like your message has a PGP signature. Chances are you updated to
GnuPG 2.1 recently. If this is the case, please make sure to follow
instructions here:


(claws from git has a workaround to figure out that problem and warn
you about it).

Short version (no warranties):

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

You also might want to move your secring.pgp out of the way, like in mv
secring.pgp secring.pgp.old
