One of the keys you imported is corrupt and thus rejected.  The debug
flags don't help here, it would be better to enable --verbose so that
you can see which key was rejected or at least which was the last key
which refrshed fie.  If you don't get any further, you should add

log-file /somewhere/dirmngr.log
debug ipc

to ~/.dirmngr.conf, kill dirmngr and retry.  The log will receive all
requests from gpg to load the keys from some keyserver.
