MySQL: Couldnt fetch GPG key from pgp.mit.edu port 11371

This one command will attempt connection on port 11371 at pgp.mit.edu :

gpg --keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu \
    --recv-keys A4A9406876FCBD3C456770C88C718D3B5072E1F5

Protocol scheme hkp:// is for port 11371 :

grep hkp /etc/services

Tought it might be my firewall, but looking at the output of sudo watch -d -n1 iptables -nvL showed no packets being dropped at all. Didn’t go look at my home router, might be that it filters out traffic (?).

Anyway, found out that one may request keys through port 80 :

gpg --keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu:80 \
    --recv-keys A4A9406876FCBD3C456770C88C718D3B5072E1F5

Story: Trying to build mysql-connector-cpp on ArchLinux (AUR) and makepkg -si fails with:
