$ gpg -v --recv-key d3498839
gpg: requesting key D3498839 from wwwkeys.us.pgp.net ...
gpg: armor header: Version: 5.0
gpg: armor header: Comment: PGP Key Server 0.9.4

gpg: key D3498839: unsupported public key algorithm
gpg: key D3498839: skipped user ID 'Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak <firstname.lastname@example.org>'
