I am trying to decrypt pgp encrypted files. I had both public and private keys and I created two files like pub.key and sec.key and imported them using

gpg --import pub.key
gpg --import sec.key

and I am trying to decrypt the files but I am facing the issue

gpg: decryption failed: No secret key

Please help me with this and if possible with a sample how the keys should be imported.

    What command are you using to try to decrypt a file? Also, what is the output of "gpg --list-secret-keys"? – hft Feb 12 at 0:15
