The filesystem on the floppy does not support hard links which are
needed for creating locks.
Workaround: Use option --lock-never and make sure that no other
instances of GnuPG is running.
BTW, There is no need to keep the pubring on a floppy, use something
to keep just the secret keys on a floppy.
