Just hit enter. There isn't any encryption, but the message is
armored and as others have pointed out, email software often just
assumes any pgp chunk that begins with "BEGIN PGP MESSAGE" is
encrypted and asks for a passphrase to pass on to gpg. I've used mutt
with gpg-agent for years now and have grown accustomed to not having
that prompt unless a passphrase was truly required. :)
