you could add more verbosity to find out what is going on, e.g. like
     gpg --verbose --import
     gpg --verbose --verbose --import
     gpg --debug-level advanced --import

If you want to check the signature, try
   gpg --verbose --verify
see if the result helps you.

Usually it is considered safe to import public keys, because they are not 
automatically trusted by GnuPG. (Usually means, unless you or some GnuPG 
using application is makeing other assumptions.)
