[SOLVED]Error "gpg: keyserver receive failed: Input/output error"

I'm trying to import a key to install an AUR package (chromium-dev) but I can't:

$ sudo pacman-key --recv-keys 9C825A6605D40BBE
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Input/output error
==> ERROR: Remote key not fetched correctly from keyserver.
$ gpg --search-keys 9C825A6605D40BBE
gpg: data source: https://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net:443

gpg: error searching keyserver: Input/output error
gpg: keyserver search failed: Input/output error

What's the problem? It finds the key but can't import it.

gpg: data source: https://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net:443

The protocol should be hkps not https i.e. hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net

Thanks but none of them work.
Finally I solved it with the help of this Arch Wiki page:

keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com
