It seems that the problem was caused by "sudo su": For some reason on Linux Redhad 8, "sodu su" does not behave as in the earlier version.
There is no difference between "sudo su - XYZ" and "sudo su XYZ".
Actually, I failed to generate the key pair when I logged on the system and then sudo-ed su to the working ID. I had to log on the system as the working ID to generate the key pair successfully.
Again, I had to decrypt the files by logging on the system as the working ID.
The behavior of sudo in Redhad 8 may be due to some configuration issues.
Thank you for reply! Shaoping

if your keypair has a passphrase set,
did an interactive pinentry come up?

Probably the same problem.
