Bug Description

That's a regression since the 1.4.20 update which impacts the software-properties tests [1]

the error is
"test_add_gpg_key (tests.test_dbus.TestDBus) ... gpg: failed to create temporary file `/home/ubuntu/.gnupg/.#lk0x21044c0.adt.7314': No such file or directory"

the command called is
"/usr/bin/gpg --no-options --no-default-keyring --no-auto-check-trustdb --trust-model always --keyring /build/software-properties-0.96.17/tests/aptroot/etc/apt/trusted.gpg --secret-keyring /tmp/tmpohq9ksnp/secring.gpg --quiet --batch --import /build/software-properties-0.96.17/tests/data/testkey.gpg"

which fails if there is no .gnupg directory
