Looking at the https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/gnupg-utils tree, looks like all is supported under the gpgconf package.

Let's try:
Code:
sudo apt clean
sudo apt remove --purge gpgconf
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install gpgconf
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo dpkg -C
If all is good then "dpkg -C" will only return to prompt.

good things can happen
