You are really using a 3 year old version which was followed by 20 more
releases.   You also missed 2.2.8 which fixes CVE-2018-12020.

Same here.  If you use 1.4 at all you need to use the latest version
(1.4.23 from 2018)!

Isn't it a general advise to first thr the latest version of a software
if you run into a bug ;-)

Anyway, ppl here can in general better help you if you explain your
problem in more detail and best show how it can be replicated.  For
example, I even don't know what this SOPS is and how it used gpg.
