ooooook...when i tired to generate a key the second time i got this: Failed to create backup key : Key generation failed : A GPG key with the same email address already exists

so then i tired to create a backup schedule where the owners can restore the backups and i get: Failed to save scheduled backup : Only signed backups can be restored by virtual server owners

Is this a VM that you're creating the key or, or a real physical machine?

bare metal machine.

any ideas? It's been a while.

Could be a compatibility issue with gnupg. Which Linux distro and version are you running, and are you just running the stock version of gpg ?
