It looks like this bug first reported in Ubuntu 17.10: ecryptfs-mount-private fails to initialize ecryptfs keys

The error there is like your own:

[ 1265.695388] Could not find key with description: [<correct key ID>]
[ 1265.695393] process_request_key_err: No key
[ 1265.695394] Could not find valid key in user session keyring for sig specified in mount option: [<correct key ID>]
[ 1265.695395] One or more global auth toks could not properly register; rc = [-2]
[ 1265.695396] Error parsing options; rc = [-2]
