Unless you also have a backup of your secret key somewhere, the passphrase=
isn't enough. It's the secret key that allows you to generate the revocatio=
certificate and the passphrase that allows access to the secret key.
If you do have a backup, import your public key from a keyserver, generate =
revocation, import it back onto your public key and send the now revoked=20
public key back to a keyserver.
