My guess is that you have updated right in the middle of a mirror sync
sesssion, when one part was already synced and the other not.

There is nothing we can do there.

Just do
	tlmgr install addliga
and all will be fine again.

This is completely unrelated, we don't use SKS at all.

Tom, please don't spread more of this FUD. In 20 years as Debian
Developer and user of GPG I have hardly used the sks servers, and there
is nothing under attack, but spammers.

The tabloid media have picked up as a big story, though.

There are interesting discussions going on on the gpg mailing list on
how to deal with this, but the nature and design decision of the sks
servers as append only store to protect from censorship and tampering
(does it remind you of blockchain?) allows for this.

Gpg by itself is not broken and can import the keys:
