It would be helpful to have information regarding which version of
gnupg this is using, and if <2.1 how the keyserver helpers were built,
primarily whether using full curl implementation or curl-shim. This
can be checked using

 $ gpg --keyserver-options verbose,debug --keyserver
hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-key 0x409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3

and one one of my VMs still running 2.0 reports
gpg: requesting key D39DC0E3 from hkp server keys.gnupg.net
gpgkeys: curl version = libcurl/7.43.0 OpenSSL/1.0.2d zlib/1.2.8

Output from "dig" or similar tools as to the state of the DNS resolver
likely used is also helpful. Another potential issue that comes up
from time to time is IPv4 vs IPv6, so pay attention to the address it
is trying to connect to in the output.
