DNS tells that there are v6 keyservers but your kernel seems to support
only legacy IP.  Change your resolver not to return AAAA records.

I won't consider this a bug but I suspect that we will have a bug the
other way around (No legacy IP but DNS returned A records).



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
