gnupg update breaks key database [SOLVED]

Hi all,
I upgraded gnupg from 2.0.26-1 to 2.1.0-4, which also removed dirmngr:

[2014-11-25 20:18] [PACMAN] Running 'pacman -Syu'
[2014-11-25 20:18] [PACMAN] synchronizing package lists
[2014-11-25 20:18] [PACMAN] starting full system upgrade
[2014-11-25 20:19] [PACMAN] removed dirmngr (1.1.1-3)
[2014-11-25 20:19] [PACMAN] upgraded gnupg (2.0.26-1 -> 2.1.0-4)

Since then, engimail complains, if I understand correctly, about not being able to migrate my gpg-keys:

Error - encryption command failed
/usr/bin/gpg --charset utf-8 --display-charset utf-8 --batch --no-tty --status-fd 2 --with-fingerprint --fixed-list-mode --with-colons --list-secret-keys
gpg: starting migration from earlier GnuPG versions
gpg: error: GnuPG agent version "2.0.26" is too old. 
gpg: Please make sure that a recent gpg-agent is running.
gpg: (restarting the user session may achieve this.)
gpg: migration aborted

Reverting to 2.0.26 with dirmngr solves the problem, but I feel a piece of security software like gpg should probably be up-to-date.
Reinstalling enigmail (it's from the AUR, after all, and got upgraded) didn't help, but the message seems to me to be more about gpg, anyway.
I should also mention that I upgrade my system pretty regularly (usually twice a day), and so didn't really expect a version jump to be too large.

I'd be grateful for any help with this.

It's weird that enigmail complains about 2.0.26 which you just upgraded? Did you try rebooting after the upgrade, maybe the old gnupg agent is still running?

Well, well, see who forgot to do a simple system reboot when he ran into upgrade problems.

Thanks! All working now. And sorry for the fuss...

noremorewindows, I suspect you posted that in the wrong thread (or I am really missing some connection).

Re: gnupg update breaks key database [SOLVED]

It could be that I needed /proc /sys /dev mounted on diskless roots.

Re: gnupg update breaks key database [SOLVED]

Found it, there was a file that was being created in /dev called null.  I think it is to be related to the gnupg update, and apparently I did need proc, sys, and dev mounted on my PXE client roots.
