Your system is not properly installed.  It is missing the gpg-agent
which is a mandatory part of GnuPG.  Except for some esoteric commands
there is no way to use gpg without gpg-agent.  The gpg-agent is used for
private keys as well as to provide a couple of other information like a
useful iteration count for the S2K mechanism.
