This is my own public key. I was talking about signing my own public key
before giving it to other people. Maybe it is already signed, because
when I click on sign, nothing seems to change. However there is nothing
under the column 'signature id' next to my email. I guess those
recommendations were outdated if the key is already signed by default.

seahorse, however, might not be representative of what's actually going
on, so I went to kgpg and saw that were two signatures under my key: one
inside the key pair, and another inside the sub key. I couldn't delete
