No installing in Mac OSX Monterey v12.1
Developer that uses GPG as sign software for Git.
I had GPG Tools installed in OSX Monterey 12.0, today I installed the latest version, v12.1, after restarting the computer and login again I made some changes in my code and tried to commit:
git commit -S -m "foo"
Unfortunately this command just hanged, I killed it and start debugging the problem.
After running it with
GIT_TRACE=true and got this command:
gpg --status-fd=2 -bsau DCA611273C3A07D0012294B42023B961E6A97F4B
I ran it and the output was:
gpg: waiting for lock (held by 292939)
This give me a hint that the
gpg process was busy with something else, so I tried to open it from the System Preferences panel, it was my surprise when it didn't open at all.
So, I tried to download the latest version
GPG_Suite-2021.3, but after going through the installation wizard it gets stuck in the "Running package scripts", just showing "Install time remaining: Less than a minute", been showing this message since 40 minutes ago.
I tried to quit the installation process but OSX says that it can because "The Installer is busy", so I ran the Uninstall wizard from the GPG Suite .dmg image, it runs successfully and also unblocks the installer, the installer now says that everything went just fine :D.
After that I restarted the computer and tried again to install it, finding myself in the exact same position with the same problem.
Not sure what else to try.
It is there a way to run it manually from the terminal?

very glad to hear that you managed to figure this one out.
Should this happen again, it's not necessary to move the whole
~/.gnupgfolder, but instead it should suffice to remove any
.lckfiles within the gnupg folder.
Closing this discussion. Feel free to open a new one at any time should you have questions or run into problems.
