Yes.  That command doesn't mean anything.  The options mean, in order,
encrypt, textmode, ascii armor, decrypt.  You have to pick either
encrypt or decrypt as doing both would result in nothing happening.
Also, --group doesn't go on the command line.  You use the group name
as a recipient (-r HlthStream).
