If you can't enter the correct passphrase, you also cannot sign

1. If you manage to work it out, change the passphrase and don't
publish the new one. A passphrase should not be public knowledge.
2. That looks like an incredibly short passphrase.

I don't know. But passphrases are case-sensitive. The caps lock may be
in the opposite setting to when you created the key? Additionally, a
different nationality of keyboard layout may move certain characters
to different keys, so check if this could have changed.
