public key cannot be deleted
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

now, where issue #2021 was solved and the loooong key can be displayed I decided
to delete it. I selected that key and tried Keys -> "Delete Keys". I clicked at
"Yes" at the info popup window with that key info, but got then:

The GPGME library returned an unexpected
error at gpakeydeleteop.c:208. The error was:

No public key

This is either an installation problem or a bug in GPA.
GPA will now try to recover from this error.

I just tried to delete a key wirth a long uid without problems.
Can you please provide a public key which exhibits this problem (bey pPM if you
prefer)

here is the the brooad key, which cannot be deleted.

IT has nothing to do with the long user id. You can't delete any X.509 key.
GPA uses gpgsm to delete this key - I have to debug this.
