Key search says "no keys found" when searching for "steve"

Reported by steve | August 10th, 2014 @ 02:33 PM

see title: cmd + f, search for "steve"


"No keys Found" (which btw should be "No keys found" or "No Keys Found")


Since the current error message simply is not true, we should display a more informative error message.

I do not know what's causing this result so let's figure out what problem at hand is causing this and respectively show a good error message.

  • If it is too many search results, we should show that info instead of displaying "no search results".

  • If it is an invalid search string, we should inform the user about what a search should look like.

A search for "mento" brings up search results, so I have the feeling the "too many search results" case is happening here.

gpg is at fault here. It says "not found" while there are actually too many results.
