Thanks for the tip. I just tried your suggestion, installed
pinentry-curses, which installed without error but I am getting the
same error when trying generate keys, just as before.

You're right there's some information I accidentally left out. I have
a standard debian 8 jessie install which included gnupg v 1.4.18. I
then downloaded and installed from gnupg.org the source code for
version GnuPG modern 2.1.16 and needed libraries. With that said you
can pick up with the opening line of this thread. I hope I didn't
leave anything out this time.
I'm really starting to feel I missed a step along the way and messed
up the install. I suppose I could do a fresh install of the OS and
just use the 1.4.18 version otherwise I'm not aware of what to do
differently on my second attempt. I feel as though I followed the
instructions. It probably some basic linux config that I'm too new to
know about, LOL.
