It could be the same problem as the one reported last month by Ximin Luo 

That problem only occurs when the public keys are stored in the new 
keybox format, which would be your case if you were “starting from an 
empty GnuPG 2.1.1 installation”.

Until the bug is fixed, a possible workaround is to force GnuPG 2.1 to 
use the legacy pubring format, e.g. by creating an empty pubring.gpg 
file in GnuPG’s home directory, prior to importing any key.
