[Gpg4win-users-en] Gpg4win 2.2.2: gpg --refresh-keys no longer working with hkps

Well, I finally found some time to upgrade to Gpg4win 2.2.3. I have
used the full intallation. However

gpg --refresh-keys

is no longer working with hkps. I have tested against
hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net. As soon as I change to
hkp://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net instead, key refresh is working

Error message with hkps is (translated from German):

No valid OpenPGP data found.
Number of processed keys: 0

I am afraid Gpg4win 2.2.3 might have caught an old and meanwhile solved
gpg issue:


Can anybody confirm this behavior?

Unfortunately, this issue forces me to downgrade to Gpg4win 2.2.2 where
hkps key refresh is working as expected.
