If importing the PGP key fails with:

gpg: keyserver receive failed: No name
problem importing keys

This has fixed it for me:

gpg --keyserver 'hkps://' --recv-keys 0392335A78083894A4301C43236E8A58C6DB4512

Thanks for the info, that the package is outdated. I did prepare an update, but the change is rejected, because the package is still seen as part of the community repository.

I think this is due to the bug reported here:
