let me guess: your USB stick is FAT formated?
maybe the access permittions of the files aren't as they should.
rename your .gnupg/ to something else, let's say .gnupg-old, then try:
gpg --import ~/.gnupg-old/pubring.gpg ~/.gnupg-old/secring.gpg
if you have a gpg.conf:
cp ~/.gnupg-old/gpg.conf ~/.gnupg/
