Thanks Steffen. No luck yet:

$ gpg --keyserver keyring.debian.org --recv-key 4B2B2B9E
gpg: requesting key 4B2B2B9E from hkp server keyring.debian.org
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: read_block: read error: invalid packet
gpg: Total number processed: 0
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error

I'll try again later.
