Receiving keys as root user

I have a GPG keychain for the root user which is used to validate all
files in my package management system.  To add a key into this key
chain, I have been running:

sudo gpg --homedir /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/ --recv-keys EAE999BD

With the 2.1 release, this now give the following error:

gpg: connecting dirmngr at '/root/.gnupg/S.dirmngr' failed: IPC connect
call failed
gpg: keyserver receive failed: No dirmngr

Is there a way to handle this that I am missing or is it a bug?
