MacGPG: selecting card failed: Operation not supported by device
Which of our tools is giving you problems?
Attach a screenshot of the version info for all installed components (how to: https://gpgtools.tenderapp.com/kb/faq/where-can-i-find-version-info...):
Latest version (2020.1)
Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.
After a reboot of my MacOS (Big Sur), keys stored on my USB Nano 4 Yubikey key are not availlable. It was working properly before the reboot. I rebooted, killed gpg-agent, scdaemon, etc... No way :(
$ gpg --card-status gpg: selecting card failed: Operation not supported by device
gpg: OpenPGP card not available: Operation not supported by device
What did you expect instead
Describe steps leading to the problem.
Are you using any other Mail.app plugins?
No, still waiting for the new version :-)

welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.
Could you update to GPG Suite 2020.2 from our website and see if that changes anything for the better or worse.

I am having the exact same problem, am on 2020.2 and my yubikey based secret keys are not functioning after the update.

Hi Xavier and Patrick,
we apologize for the bad experience.
This issue could be related to a regression introduced in GnuPG 2.2.24 which should be fixed in 2.2.25: https://dev.gnupg.org/T5065
We are currently in the process of preparing a hotfix with GnuPG 2.2.25 and will inform you once that is available.

Tx! BTW, any idea about the availability of the upgrade compatible with Big Sur?

GPG Suite 2020.2 is available from our website. We started slowly rolling out automatic updates today. This is a slow roll out so you may not see it if you check via automatic check. This will be changed in the coming days. But you can always download from our website.
