Hi Rene,

welcome to the GnuPG community, thanks for trying GnuPG 2.1. :)

it seems that there is a check that keyserver needs to be configured
(even if it probably is not used). Try like

LANG=C gpg2 --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net  \
  --auto-key-locate dane --search-keys info at mail.de

(my result:
gpg: error searching keyserver: No data
gpg: keyserver search failed: No data

The superfluous keyserver check should probably be checked for 2.1.15 and then 
reported to bugs.gnupg.org (if it isn't there already).
