At the very least it's missing a self-signature (I can't recall
exactly which packages generate broken keys like this, but the one
you describe sounds like it's one of them).

You should be able to at least import and work with this key using
--allow-non-selfsigned-uid, but you should really have your
correspondent sign their own key.
