    Hey Neo,

    there could be several reasons for this problem. First thing I'd try is to change the key server and see if that helps.

    You can do that in the GPG Keychain Access settings. There's a dropdown list of key servers. Sometimes a key server is broken or dead for a few hours, so changing that setting might help.

    Let us know if that helps,

    Are you running the latest nightly Installer from here?
