Key signature verification failure for ELPA installation

I've had an EBDB bug report[1] from someone installing the package using
package-install (with Emacs 25 on Ubuntu 17.10). EBDB requires seq
(specifically, it requires seq>=2.15), which currently exists in the
repos as 2.20. In fact, seq is built-in, though I don't understand all
the implications of that.

The error is as follows:

Failed to verify signature seq-2.20.tar.sig:
No public key for 474F05837FBDEF9B GNU ELPA Signing Agent address@hidden 
created at 2017-05-05T00:05:02+0300 using DSA
Command output:
gpg: keyblock resource '/tmp/try28880WQE/gnupg/pubring.kbx': No such file or 
gpg: Signature made пт, 05-тра-2017 00:05:02 +0300 EEST
gpg: using DSA key 474F05837FBDEF9B
gpg: Can't check signature: No public key

This looks weird to me for a few reasons, not least that gpg is looking
for the public keyring under the /tmp directory, but I don't know enough
about Emacs package signing to even triage this.

I'm hoping someone can give me some first impressions, so I can either
open a proper bug report, or go back to the user with a wontfix/need
more info.
