Secret key without public key

Tue Mar 30 00:14:15 CEST 2010

Help!!  Just last week I was able to decrypt files for our Vendor.  I tried this morning and now I get the message below.  The only changes that occurred was that another vendor key was added last week.  The ELG-E Key is the same the message was encrypted with.  Any insight to this message is appreciated.  I read a few articles and it stated to delete secret key but I am not comfortable with deleting any key without some kind of guidance since I am a rookie at gpg.   Anyway I am confused as to why I would need to delete the secret key when nothing has changed for this vendor.
gpg: key 9EDEB618: secret key without public key - skipped
gpg: encrypted with ELG-E key, ID BEA2D168
gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available
Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide
