GnuPG is software for working with OpenPGP material (keys, signatures,
and encrypted messages).  Newer versions of GnuPG will continue to work
with pre-existing OpenPGP material.

This means that you should not need to generate another OpenPGP key just
because your version of GnuPG was upgraded.  Your existing OpenPGP key
should continue to work.
