First of all, thank you all for your prompt answer. I tried all
of your suggestions, the one that worked for me was Ivan Markins'
The one related to the clipboard didn't work, because it was a
partially signed message, I think.
I installed gnupg-curl, and I am having the right version, but
still doesn't work.
> Hi Lluis,
> I suppose you are using the Enigmail add-on. In the Torbirdy wiki
>  the developers state that "Enigmail is supported and is safe
> to use with TorBirdy (...) but you will not be able to use
> Enigmail for communicating with keyservers until we find a HTTP ->
> SOCKS5 shim." The idea is to not leak location information.
> Disabling TorBirdy to fetch the keys kind of defeats that purpose.
> There are two workarounds that I know of, if you want/have to use
> 1) Look up the key manually, check fingerprint, copy the long
> block of gibberish that starts with -----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY
> BLOCK----- to the clipboard. Now go to your mail program, choose
> Enigmail -> manage keys -> edit -> import key from clipboard.
> 2) use gpg with curl support (Linux/OSX only). This is explained
> in the TorBirdy wiki as well  Scroll down to Additional Add-Ons
> -> Enigmail.
