Indeed, as the KEY file itself suggests, it’s best to not rely on that
file alone and to cross-check the key with other key servers.

The only issue with your [2] link is that it’s missing the ‘0x’ prefix,
which most key server web interfaces seem to require/assume to be part
of the search input, and sadly fail to return the result if it’s absent.

So, any of the following links should work:

You should then be able to grab the public key by clicking on the key
fingerprint on any of the pages linked above.

Hope this helps,
