Except the OP was referring to gpg2 which does not have any of the Camellia code
in it yet. So concluding that it's Camellia is a bit of a stretch.

Since the error occurred in md_enable, it'd be a safer bet to go checking in the
hash functions.

Also, this is a *known error*, see this thread, 'Algorithm 11 not available',

It stems from the fact that the cipher library in gpg2 does not have SHA-224
(hash algorithm 11) enabled.
