from the scratch, as logged to the screen, it might be prepared
that secring.gpg, which is expected in directory .gnupg cannot 

> gpg: /home/treutwei/.gnupg: directory created
> gpg: new configuration file `/home/treutwei/.gnupg/gpg.conf' created
> gpg: keyblock resource `/home/treutwei/.gnupg/secring.gpg': file open error
> gpg: keyring `/home/treutwei/.gnupg/pubring.gpg' created
