That sounds a bit strange to me. What exactly is "fails to work" supposed to
mean? It's a huge difference whether
a) a key cannot create good signatures
b) a key (and thus its signatures) is not trusted

You can easily set the trust level for a key:
gpg --edit-key 0x12345678 trust
But that affects your local installation only. That gpg --export-ownertrust
fails may be a hint that the file is corrupted. You could delete / rename it
and run gpg --update-trustdb afterwards.
