When trying to delete a GnuPG key, I get this error.

GnuPG
Unable to delete key. You might need to
delete the secret key first (secret keys must be deleted from a ssh
session


Which is the procedure to delete the key from ssh ?

If I terminate the account with the GnuPG keys ,
the Keys are deleted or remain on the server ?

Thank you

I have a slightly different problem... I delete a GnuPG in cpanel, it asks for confirmation and when I return to the list it is still there. I also checked the file on the server and the trustdb file hadn't changed.

All I am trying to do really is renew the key, it had expired.

Any ideas?

Hi, anyone else worked out a solution to this?
I managed to delete the keys but now I can't remake them, it says it was successful but I have no keys, and I really need to have them
Any help would be great

removing GnuPG keys

Use the following GnuPG commands from the (shell)command line in this order:

gpg --help
gpg --list-keys
gpg --delete-secret-keys keyname
gpg --deletekeys keyname

Same problem here. Choose to delete a key, confirm, the confirmation result is shown "Public Key B0A0F699 has been deleted" but then.. nothing changed. The key is still in the list.

Anyone?
