Thank you Nicola, I've updated the post accordingly! The "import" part now covers the key creation case and gpg --armor --export command.

Yes, if you don't have any issues with this error message, you don't have to specify the path. It was just meant for those, who are facing the same problem as I did.

I wouldn't recommend using a private key without a passphrase for security reasons. But yes, you're right: you don't have to use a passphrase.
