    Hi Anothony,

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

    You are using a very outdated version of GPG Suite. Did you intentionally disable the update check? You can enable it in System Preferences > GPG Suite > Settings > Updates.

    If you want to keep it disabled, please do a manual search for an update. Should that trigger problems, download GPG Suite 2020.1 from our website.

    Are you then able to export keys as expected?

    All the best,
