Recently I happend to experience a quite unpleasant power outage which caused my system to go down unexpectadly. After power came back the system came back as well and other than a fsck being required all seemed fine. The unedifying surprise hit me when I first tried to access my pass password store - it complained about gpg being broken; so I checked with plain
and got this:
gpg: failed to create temporary file `/home/meUser/.gnupg/.#lk0x14368b8.meBox.13459': Not a directory gpg: keyblock resource `/home/meUser/.gnupg/secring.gpg': general error gpg: failed to create temporary file `/home/meUser/.gnupg/.#lk0x14379f0.meBox.13459': Not a directory gpg: keyblock resource `/home/meUser/.gnupg/pubring.gpg': general error
Does this mean that gnupg is broken on my system now or is this something user specific? I guess my password store is gone, just wondering how to fix gpg to set up a new store.
