Mentors tries to enforce strong GPG key for newcomers, hence the error
you see when trying to import your key.

In order not to conflict with Debian keyring actual requirements, we do
accept other keys, on a per case basis (people would usually contact
mentors's support email). Having a key already in the keyring
definitively fall under this category.

So, I've force the importation of your key and you should now be able to
upload with 0x03A1FB7A1904771B.
