Did it say that an secret key was imported? You check your secret keys
gpg -K [USERIDs]
if you add --debug=ipc you will how gpg asks gpg-agent whether a secret
key is available for a given public key. Here the so-called keygrips
are used and not the fingerprints of the key. In the directory
".gnupg/private-keys-v1.d" you should find files of the form
"KEYGRIP.key. These store the private keys. Do you have some?
To see the keygrips of a key you used
gpg --with-keygrip -k [USERIDs]
Youy can used --debug=ipc also with --import which then shows how gpg
sends the private keys to gpg-agent. Does it all look fine or do you
see "ERR" lines?
