This is most likely your problem. currently 
consists of a single node, and so is vulnerable to transient network 
failures etc. But the default keyserver was changed a long time ago, so 
either you are using an old version of gnupg, or you have a custom 
config file with obsolete settings.

* What version of gnupg are you using?
* Did you build it locally or download a binary?
* What's in your dirmngr.conf file?
