GPG Services won't decrypt anything (solved by updating to GPG Suite 2017.1b3)

GPG Services won't decrypt anything anymore. I'm using known-good keys, and the keys are not expired. My setup hasn't changed in 3 years and it used to work fine.

I have the same public/secret key pair I've had since 2014 (no expiration date) and the subkeys aren't expired.

I can write a plain text message, encrypt it with my public key as the recipient, then immediately attempt to decrypt and I get a "Decrypt failed! Code = 32870" error.

Any ideas?
