That looks like a c+p error.  The timestamp is an asctime and has no
Unicode characters.  But even then it won't harm because it is comment

The problem the OP is due to the use of a gnupg-2 conf file with
gnupg-1.  If gnupg-1 is still required, the simpelest solution is to
create an empty  ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf-1 file.
