GPG Keychain: Broken pubring.kbx file?
GPG Keychain has stopped seeing me any keys. Even when a new one is added, it does not show up on the list.
After entering in terminal the "gpg -k" command, the following message appears:
When I delete the .gnupg directory, I can then import or add new keys.

welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.
Can you follow the steps in the following KB article and let us know if that brings back your keys:

I deleted the pubring.kbx and trust.db files.
GPG has created a new profile. I downloaded my public keys from the key server, and then from the backup I restored all private keys from the "private-keys-v1.d" folder as well as from the "openpgp-revocs.d" - revocation certificates.
Everything works as it should.
Thank you and best regards.
