Error when attempting to receive dropbox keyring

Unix & Linux Asked by Enrico on September 26, 2020

I picked the Git Clone URL from here, cloned the repo on my system, and the I run makepkg -si in the repo’s directory, which resulted in

    dropbox-lnx.x86_64-102.4.431.tar.gz ... FAILED (unknown public key FC918B335044912E)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

From the FAQ section here, I read that this means I don’t have the required public key, and that I need to go here, where I read that I should import the key, as described here; since there’s no public.key file in the repo, I copied the id from within the PKGBUILD file and run gpg --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E, which is also assumed the correct step to do in this question, where the answers don’t deny it, but I got this error:

gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure

that the previous link does not mention; indeed, it mentions a similar error gpg: keyserver receive failed: Connection refused (suggesting in that case to check your DNS servers or use others).
