The fix is easy: upgrade GnuPG.

Version 1.2.6 is old, really old.  The certificate you're trying to
import uses an algorithm (DSA2) which is relatively new.  GnuPG is
trying to treat this as a DSA certificate and is complaining that it
uses the wrong parameters.

Download and install the GnuPG 1.4.13 source code from:

... and this problem will go away.
