i searched for it four times in 5 minutes and it worked three times,
failing twice with "No data"; anyway it seems to me that search is always
very slow

this issue has been reported to GnuPG but
AFAIU thers is nothing they can do, nor Guix maintainers

...but: I've switched to hkps:// [1] as my
default pool and now lookups are _very_ fast

should we change the proposed command line to fetch the key in the
installation script and in the "Binary installation" section of the

something like

  gpg --keyserver hkps:// --search-keys 

AFAIU for this to work out of the box users need a 2.1.11 and above
gnupg version, otherwise they should follow the instructions found here:

pointers to official GnuPG manual/howto on how to set hkps pools?

[1] "keyserver hkps://" in my .gnupg/gpg.conf
