The second retry counter is used for the second PIN. In general gpg
tries to sync the second PIN with the first PIN but that may fail under
some circumstances. Note, that it is not an unblocking PIN but the PIN
for used for the decryption key.

Try 1 (change PIN). This should sync it again. BTW, you may do the same by
$ gpg --card-edit
