I'm confused by the version numbers you indicate. They sound like they're
prehistoric, unsupported and simply too old to use.

It should be:
gpg --allow-secret-key-import --import "secretkey.txt"
You are allowing secret key import, but not actually importing. You're invoking
the default action, which for keys is displaying them, not importing them. So
you need to specify that the wanted action is --import.
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
