email@example.com key expired
Which of our tools is giving you problems?
The download of GPG Suite, i.e. https://releases.gpgtools.org/GPG_Suite-2020.1.dmg. If I try to verify its gpg signature, I get the warning that the [email blocked] key has expired, and the GPG Keychain suggests that that happened yesterday (see screenshot).

welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.
Our key has already been extended. Please select the key in GPG Keychain and press ⌘ Command U to updated the selected key from the key server.
Let me know if that worked.
All the best,

Yes, that worked, although I used the command line ('gpg --refresh-keys --keyserver hkps://keys.openpgp.org'. I used hkps://keys.openpgp.org because hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net (which was the default on my system) gave a 'signature packet: hashed data too long' error back).
Sorry for the confusion, I check gpg signatures often, but my understanding of key management is still limited.

No Problem. I would recommend to switch the default key server to hkps://keys.openpgp.org in GPG Keychain > Preferences > Key Server.
It is a far superior solution compared to the old key servers.
Glad this is solved for you. I'm closing this discussion. Should you need further assistance or have questions you can re-open this discussion here or open a new one any time.
