OK, I was partly wrong.
It appears that I had the public key already downloaded. But even if I delete that key the gpg2 
--verify will fetch it for me, but it gets it from keyserver hkp://

And you cannot use as search key, because that's not in the key.
Use the ID: gpg2 --keyserver  hkp://  --search-keys AFEEAEA3

The key identifies as:
LibreOffice Build Team (CODE SIGNING KEY) <>
          4096 bit RSA key F434A1EFAFEEAEA3, created: 2010-10-11

Hope this helps.


That was it! I changed the keyserver and used the ID and gpg found the key and imported it. The check with the .asc file now works. For some reason, my gpg will not automatically fetch the key from the .asc file. I must manually import it. It may be that way for security reasons.

Thank you very much.
