If you are on Linux, just delete the '~/.gitconfig' or '/home/$USER/.gitconfig' file. This will take git to an unconfigured state. The problem was that somehow the configuration file got changed by some unwanted operation and the value of `gpgsign` was set to `null`. Deleting the file or deleting the line containing `gpgsign` should solve the problem.

Edit: That problem is due to you have "git gpg signing" turned on, but no GnuPG installed. It's easy to disable it permanently by modyfing your .gitconfig, just type this command:

git config --global commit.gpgsign false 

Ok I managed to fix the issue following this post and Shayan Amani answer. Basically we need to update our gpgsign and sync the email with it inside GitHub. 

some eror, any idea please?
