in general, increasing verbosity helps to understand better what is going on.

For most GnuPG command line tools, this means to add "--verbose" or the short 
form "-v" to the command line. A second "-v" will give you more data.
Then there is the group of "--debug" options which will give you even more 
insights. Check the documentation to see what they actually do.

(And be careful when posting those verbose information, it my contain sensible 
parts if higher debug levels are used.)
