Subject: [gentoo-user] emerge --sync: problem refreshing keys

1 Hello to everyone,
2 since yesterday emerge --sync fails because it can't refresh keys. The
3 messages I get are:
5 Syncing repository 'gentoo' into '/usr/portage'...
6 * Using keys from /usr/share/openpgp-keys/gentoo-release.asc
7 * Refreshing keys via WKD ... [ !! ]
8 * Refreshing keys from keyserver hkps:// ...OpenPGP keyring
9 refresh failed:
10 gpg: refreshing 4 keys from hkps://
11 gpg: keyserver refresh failed: No keyserver available
13 OpenPGP keyring refresh failed:
14 gpg: refreshing 4 keys from hkps://
15 gpg: keyserver refresh failed: No keyserver available
17 After that, it goes on for a while with the same message.
19 As I have seen no messages regarding this either here or on the forums, I
20 guess there's something wrong on my system, but I can't imagine what's wrong.
21 Two days ago I could sync without problems. Looking at the emerge log, I that
22 that most of the packages I installed were from kde-frameworks and kde-apps,
23 so I don't think they can have caused this issue.
25 Do you have any idea about how to solve this issue? Searching Google, I found
26 several mentions of similar issues, but they were old (about one year ago) and
27 the proposed solution was to install app-portage/gemato-14.0. Of course, all
28 older versions of gemato aren't in portage anymore, so that can't be the
29 issue.
31 Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?
33 Thanks in advance
35 Stefano
