Which of our tools is giving you problems? GPG Keychain

Attach a screenshot of the version info for all installed components (how to:

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible. I try to create a passphrase but every attempt it prompts that it is an incorrect passphrase when i have not even created a passphrase yet. This happens when i attempt to make a private key and i am given this...
Export failed !!!! Code = 0
Error text:
gpg: key A506E7981E21636F63B563CEDE096956C2D636A6: error receiving key from agent: Bad passphrase - skipped
gpg: key 1C90574846FEFB7432E8BE5313545E5465EC33C7: error receiving key from agent: Bad passphrase - skipped
WARNING: nothing exported

What did you expect instead I expected to simply be able to create a passphrase for my private key.

Describe steps leading to the problem. Researched, GPG Suite- keychain appeared to be mac platforms best option, had no problem getting up to the point im at now, i followed the tutorials and have watched multiple videos in relation to my problem and have ether not found a fix or the fix that appeared would work has no effect.
Also here is a link to the previous discussion that has brought me to this page.

Are you using any other plugins? Not that i am aware of, i never got to into the mail side of your tools as i really only needed it for the public/private keys. As far as i know i have the default mac and the gpg mail.
