    It seems I'm missing all those updates (tens of thousands daily).

You don't want those updates, they're not real. See earlier thread:

The number of real new keys entering the synchronising network has
reduced to one every few days now that the pool DNS entries no longer
resolve. Some hockeypuck servers report a large number of updated keys
every day, but this is almost exclusively churn - I suspect it is due to
inconsistent ordering of packets between different keyservers.

Quite possible. But the difference is huge. And the odds of it
reaching _zero_ for a full week smells very fishy :-(

OK, you should be getting *some* new keys, even discounting the thousands of false-positive updated keys. Let me look into it.
