Your key looks fine to me.  Possibly the GD was complaining that you
have two expired subkeys, though this should not matter as you also
have an unexpired one.

Perhaps try deleting the expired subkeys before submitting the key to
the GD.  If that works, you might submit a bug report on the GD, since
an expired subkey should not prevent uploading the whole key.
