Thank you for your enthusiastic answer to my question in T5454.
Compare the above two output.
In the output of the GPG command, there is a # sign after the key pair ”sec“, which means that the content of the master key does not exist.

Please read T5454 again. To get the listing I showed you need to use the latest gpgme from Git master.

I tried again after cloning the master branch, and I finally figured it out. Sorry for the trouble caused by this irrelevant question just submitted. thanks again.
