promptsecret | dcrctl --wallet walletpassphrase - 0. The wallet must be unlocked for it to be able to create the revocations and sign them.

At that point, you should see some details about the revocation transactions in the wallet log.

you will see the funds move to the immaturestakegeneration category in the
getbalance output. Finally, after 256 blocks, they will move to the spendable category and thus be available to spend.
