Just a quick update on this.

$ gpg --refresh-keys
This gave me an error saying that Tor was not running. Sorry - I did not
capture the exact output from the command.

I found that dirmngr.conf had a "use-tor" item. After commenting this
setting out and rebooting:

$ gpg --refresh-keys
gpg: refreshing <lots of> keys from hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net
gpg: keyserver refresh failed: General error

This was a much shorter error message, not complaining about Tor. But
still not very helpful :-)

So I decided to try the original command as something had changed:
$ gpg -vvv --keyserver keyring.debian.org --send-key 'fingerprint'
gpg: using character set 'utf-8'
gpg: sending key <my-key> to hkps://keyring.debian.org

That seemed to work! Probably I should be using Tor for obvious reasons.
I will look into that another day.
