GPG Keychain "Import successful - No keys imported"
I encountered this message today and it seems a bit odd. I believe it occurred due to a newly published key that hadn't finished synchronizing to all the SKS nodes. So when I searched for it, I hit a node that had it, but then when I tried to retrieve it I'm guessing I hit a node that didn't have it yet and so it couldn't be downloaded. Seems this message might should be tweaked since it the import was technically unsuccessful.

again, thanks for taking the time to report. That is also on macOS 10.12 using GPG Suite 2019.1?
Can you share the fingerprint so I can try to reproduce? I have not encountered this and the error message indeed sounds wrong.
Are you able to do some more testing and see if you can figure out any pattern to reproduce this odd error message?

Yes, this is also on 10.12.6 & 2019.1
I don't think the fingerprint will do you any good based on what I believe is the root cause of this behavior:
The only way I can think to test/re-produce this would be to have 2 key servers. The first server with a specific key and the second server without the same key. You'd then need to arrange for the search operation take place on the first server & the receive operation take place on the second server - perhaps by modifying the hosts file in between operations?

We will have to tweak that message. We have a ticket for this problem. I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll stay in the loop and get notified as soon as we have news. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.
