yes,

If you didn’t backup those keys then forget about recovering it.

now to generate a new the system asks me the old one

are you trying to generate it in webmail or your system locally? I don’t recommend using the webmail, you should probably stick to an email client (thunderbird, claws-mail support pgp).

No. The webmail should not ask for previous keys to generate a new one, can you share a screenshot of the error?
