gnupg key generation error!


When i gen a new gpg key on the command line or by seahorse or kgpg i get this error:
Code:
gpg: [don't know]: invalid packet (ctb=00)
gpg: /home/gabrix/.gnupg/pubring.gpg: copy to `/home/gabrix/.gnupg/pubring.gpg.tmp' failed: invalid packet
gpg: error writing public keyring `/home/gabrix/.gnupg/pubring.gpg': invalid packet
Key generation failed: invalid packet
That's the permissions on .gnupg dir in my home:
Code:
gabrix@mail:~$ ls -la .gnupg/
total 29228
