there does seem to be such an option as --check-options.

There are such options as:
--import-options, --export-options, --list-options, --keyserver-options,
and a few more; all of them have to be defined by a value, e.g.
--list-options no-show-photos (do not show photos when listing keys
included in a user's keyserver), and so on.

Whereas the --check option is always (or usually) composed as
--check-sigs, --check-trustdb, etc.

--check-options as a inclusive option followed by a defining value is
invalid (I believe ungültige means invalid).

So maybe you'd be better erase (or comment) --check-options in your
gpg.conf file.

Just a thought,
