These errors occur when the digest algorithm the message claims it's
using isn't the same as the one it's actually using; or if it uses an
algorithm other than one which must be used.  E.g., you could (pre-DSA2
support in GnuPG) get this error message if you attempted to process a
message that had a DSA signature using SHA256 as opposed to SHA-1 or

Looking at key 0xBA279E56, it appears to be a DSA-1024 signing key.  How
much do you want to bet they're using DSA2 and you don't have
enable-dsa2 in your gpg.conf?
