    Hi Joe,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    Your debug log suggests that your secret key(s)/subkey(s) are in expired state. This KB-article explains how to extend the expiry date of your Key and Subkey in case it will soon expire or has already expired.

    Let me know if this brings you back to working state.

    Best regards & stay safe,
