Hello Daniel,
I am another user who's been bitten by this bug.

When the bug report severity was downgraded below the RC threshold,
apt-listbugs removed the pin on my boxes and I upgraded dirmngr.

  [UPGRADE] dirmngr:amd64 2.1.15-3 -> 2.1.15-4
  [UPGRADE] gnupg:amd64 2.1.15-3 -> 2.1.15-4
  [UPGRADE] gnupg-agent:amd64 2.1.15-3 -> 2.1.15-4

Immediately after, I was no longer able to refresh keys from the key

  $ gpg --keyserver-options no-honor-keyserver-url \
    --import-options repair-pks-subkey-bug \
    --refresh-keys 0x3E1C27E11F69BFFE
  gpg: signal Interrupt caught ... exiting

I had to press [Ctrl+C] after a long wait with no output at all.

As soon as I downgraded dirmngr, everything was back to normal:

  # dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/dirmngr_2.1.15-3_amd64.deb \
            /var/cache/apt/archives/gnupg_2.1.15-3_amd64.deb \

Please do not downgrade the severity of this bug report, until the bug
is fixed (this way apt-listbugs users will be warned about this issue
