Is there any 'isencrypted 'function available on Debian which judges

Unless the ciphertext contains some sort of standard header (e.g. *.gpg
files), then no. The file utility will report file types for anything it
knows about, such as pgp/gpg messages, but will report unmarked
ciphertext as "data" or "text" in most cases.
