One fix is to force GNUPGHOME to point inside the build directory, another option is to upgrade it to a newer release that modified the tests to remove some directory dependencies [1]. The upgrade requires a merge from Debian, creates new packages and changes how gnupg2 interacts with systemd, thus not ideal so close to the release.

  * debian/patches/0005-set-gnupghome-for-tests.patch:
    - set GNUPGHOME to a directory under the build directory as the
      default value relies on $HOME which shouldn't be used during
      the package build. LP: #1722939.
