Key can sign.
You need a pass phrase to unlock your secret key.

Did the client encrypt using your public key?
no their own key. which i got from them and added to my keychain..

now... i did get gnupg. the error i'm getting is pretty much the same. the client insists the passphrase is correct. here is the output:

------   start -------------------

# gpg -d the_pgp_file.pgp
