This is alarming and dangerous .


There may be a mismatch in your pinentry package, You have 3 (maybe 4)
options. On 42.3 you have

pinentry
pinentry-gtk2
pinentry-qt4

If you are using one that doesn't correspond to your desktop, it may actually
be passing the password correctly to decrypt, but no providing the desktop
specific exit code thus generating the failure dialog. I've seen cases where
the correct pinentry is a loose dependency, so if you installed a desktop by
other than choosing the whole pattern, you may be in this boat.
