Error searching key from keyserver in gpg 2.1.19

I have installed GnuPG 2.1.19 on my Windows 8.1 (x64) machine. When I
search for a key on a keyserver it shows this error:

  gpg: error searching keyserver: Input/output error
  gpg: Suche auf dem Schlüsselserver fehlgeschlagen: Input/output error

My commandline:

  gpg --keyserver hkp:// --search-keys

When I do this with GnuPG 1.4.21 everything is ok.
What's the problem here?

Best regards
