I have a Yubikey Neo (3.3.0) with the GPG applet. I have my secret key there, and have generated stubs which are on my Mac (OS X 10.12). I have the latest GPGTools installed (gpg2 2.0.30).

Using the command-line tools I can successfully encrypt and decrypt items when the Yubikey is inserted. As expected, these operations fail when the key is not present.

However, if I try to add an identity, the operation fails with the error below. Any ideas?

That part works fine on Linux, I tried it earlier today.
The card is having probably having problems seeing your key. (I had a ton of small problems like that, it's awful how brittle these clients/agents/whatever are).

Maybe you can try to boot from Live CD and create a new key (you don't want to save, obviously).
