I have problems importing my GPG-Keys into my new installation of debian. I exportet the private-key a few years ago. Now I am trying to get everything running under a new debian.

I tried to do

  gpg --allow-secret-key-import --import private-key.asc

But I only get this:

gpg: Keine gültigen OpenPGP-Daten gefunden.
gpg: Anzahl insgesamt bearbeiteter Schlüssel: 0

which translates to:

gpg: No valid OpenPGP-Data found
gpg: Number of processed Keys : 0

The file looks correct and starts with

--BEGIN PGP PRIVATE KEY BLOCK-----
Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)

and ends with

-----END PGP PRIVATE KEY BLOCK-----

what could be wrong?

Found the answer. There were some --- missing at the beginng.
