That's an error from your loader. It can't run gpg, because the gpg binary is built with USB smartcard reader support via libusb, but your system doesn't have libusb available within your LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This isn't a gpg error - gpg never even got executed here.
The fix is to either figure out where you have libusb and include that in your path, to get libusb, or rebuild gpg to not require libusb.
