i'm not sure specifically what you mean by "information of trust" -- do
you mean validity of user ids?  or knowledge of which keys are
"ultimately" or "fully" or "marginally" trusted as introducers (this is
known as "ownertrust")?

if you run "gpg --check-trustdb" it will show you how many keys have
certain ownertrust levels.  For example:

gpg: marginals needed: 3  completes needed: 1  trust model: pgp
gpg: depth: 0  valid:   1  signed:  19  trust: 0-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 1u
gpg: depth: 1  valid:  19  signed:  58  trust: 18-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 0u

means that there is one key with ultimate ownertrust which has signed 19
keys, and no other keys have any ownertrust.

Do you recall having assigned ownertrust in the past to any keys?  how
many secret keys do you have that are your own?  Those keys should have
"ultimate" ownertrust.

This sounds mail user agent specific to me; it seems that you're using
thunderbird (with enigmail?), but i'm not sure what it means to "only see
the Name and E-Mail addresses" -- can you clarify?

if you have an older copy of your ~/.gnupg/ on a machine that has gpg1,
you should try using "gpg1 --homedir /path/to/.gnupg.backup
--export-ownertrust" and comparing its output with "gpg2
--export-ownertrust" (which looks at the current ~/.gnupg).

if they differ, you might try sending the old ownertrust into stdin of
"gpg2 --import-ownertrust" and seeing whether that resolves the issue.

the ownertrust should *not* have been cleared during the upgrade, but
maybe it somehow was?
