I've lost track of where the end of any thread on this is :-/

At the moment, none of our package-installed GPG 2.1.x are able to retrieve keys.

It's causing lots of grief here.  I need to decide whether to remove/blacklist it from all our machines, or rollback to some working version, etc. 

What's the status on the bug

gpg 2.1.15, *no* keyservers found for submit/recv, "DNS query returned an error or no records: No such domain (nxdomain)"


I've tried to provide every bit of requested info so far.  If there's more needed let me know exactly what.
