On the screen, I see GPG failed hash check since it cannot find
the path which is printed as
(Sorry, my environment may input backslash character a Japanese currency 
xxxxx are Chinese characters and obviously GPG failed since there is NO 
directory separator before AppData. Following AppData, the directory 
separator characters are visible and seem to be OK.

It has been known that some software packages fail
when it encounters a pathname that contains " " (space) or
as suggested by Akira a non-ASCII characters.
So probably, GPG is the culprit.

So in this case, given the pathname not understood by GPG has 
"AppData\Local\Temp"  definitely, you should set TEMP, TMPDIR, and TMP 
to be ASCII only pathname in order to make sure gpg will create or 
receive understandable pathnames for itself.
