Let's debug it.  Run the following in a clean (emacs -q) instance:

(require 'epa-file)
(require 'auth-source)
(require 'cl)
(setq auth-source-debug t ; use `message' to log messages
      epa-file-cache-passphrase-for-symmetric-encryption t
      auth-sources '((:source "~/.authinfo.gpg" :host t :protocol t)))
(auth-source-user-or-password "login" "" "imap")
