Thanks for your report.  As a work-around, (yum install gnupg).

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2012-07-23 16:13:51 UTC
Fixed in rawhide volume_key-0.3.8-3.fc18 , rhel7 build to follow.

Comment 3 Miloslav Trmač 2012-08-06 19:12:35 UTC
Dependency added in volume_key-0.3.8-4.el7 , and it should fix the error message from comment 0 - but please re-test, I'm pretty sure you'll run into #637902 (... and then this bug should be reassigned).
