interacting with the keyserver '' seems to
be broken as of lately under Arch Linux 4.17.8-1 using GnuPG 2.2.9-1.

Please see attached the output of 'env LANG=en_US.UTF-8 gpg -vvv
--debug-all --search-keys Torvalds'.

The output of 'gpg-connect-agent --dirmngr 'KS_GET 0x4D1E900E14C1CC04'
/bye' is as follows:

> ERR 167805009 No such file or directory <Dirmngr>

The problem might be related to:

Thank you for your consideration!
