Reposting from https://askubuntu.com/questions/847300/expired-undeleteable-certificates-in-gnomes-passwords-and-keys

I just found that little app called "Passwords and keys" in gnome and see a lot of certificates that are expired. Some of them are plain empty (no description/information), some of them for services like skype, live, google, yahoo.

Passwords and keys main window

Certificate description

These certificates cannot be deleted (context menu Delete is disabled). The question(s) is - how these certificates got there (my OpenSUSE Leap 42.1 installation is from 2016, I didn't have any linux on my machine back in 2014), are they a security risk and how to get rid of them?

Other strange thing: Cannot create a GPG key. Throws a "General error"

 ls -la ~/ | grep gnup
 drwx------  3 user1 users      135 Nov  8 20:45 .gnupg
 ls -l ~/.gnupg
 total 16
