UIDs are not stored on the smartcard. Actually only subkeys are stored there. You need primary (master) key from external source to even use smartcard subkeys.
Maybe you don’t have your master key available to complete the UID adding procedure? (Master key with Certify ability can be put on a smartcard).
@wiktor Right. I have 3 subkeys on the smart card and the master key is backup somewhere save. So I need to add the uid to the master key?
@wiktor alright. Thanks for the clarification 👍
