GPG key issue

I keep getting this issue when trying to commit to my repository using my GPG key

gpg: skipped “5ECC9CCC2F127097”: secret key not available
gpg: signing failed: secret key not available
error: gpg failed to sign the data
fatal: failed to write commit object

I’ve followed this tutorial exactly https://help.github.com/articles/generating-a-new-gpg-key/ so I’m not sure why it doesn’t work for me. I’m using windows 10.

Hi @greeves12 Thanks for being part of the GitHub Community Forum!

At this point, this sounds like something you’ll want to write into our private support for: https://github.com/contact. It’s likely we’ll need to discuss some account-specific details to troubleshoot the issue, and we can’t do that in a public forum.

You can share the link to this Forum post in your email so that you don’t have to restate your issue. A private support team member will then help you.

Cheers!
