Generating revocation certificate

Dear all,

After I've created a new key and uploaded it to a key server, I ran into
something when generating a revocation certificate.

In Seahorse, I could select the right (new) key and make a revocation
certificate from there.

But when I tried to do the some thing in Bash I ran into the following:

$ gpg -a --output andre at --gen-revoke andre at

sec  4096R/F5FE3668 2014-07-31 André Ockers <andre at>

Which is the fingerprint of the old key.

What happened and what can I do?

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

André Ockers
