I'm not a GPG guru, but I had a problem like that 
(not sure if I got the same error code, though ...): 

The entry "pinentry-program" in ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf was not pointing 
to the correct location (I had pinentry-qt installed, but the path was wrong): 
pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-qt

The password dialog window didn't come up in my case, of course.
