These two "unknown" messages indicate a parsing problem in gpg2john. The
generated hash is likely broken, and won't be cracked by JtR.

This problem is being tracked at,

https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/issues/2616

This URL also has a patch for gpg2john, which should fix this parsing
problem. Give it a try, and do report back your results.
