gpg files are usually encrypted, which means you need a key to get at
the contents. If you haven't used gpg or PGP before, then your
correspondent probably didn't encrypt the file to a public key. They
will have used a password. You need to know that password to access
the file.

I suggest you contact the person who sent you this file. They should
be able to help out.
