My system has suddenly stopped being able to create new lxc containers using the "-t download" method. creating a new container by specifying it (lxc-create -t ubuntu -n test1) still works.
Here's an example;
root at cont02:~# lxc-create -t download -n test1 --logfile=test.log --logpriority=DEBUGSetting up the GPG keyringERROR: Unable to fetch GPG key from keyserver.lxc-create: lxccontainer.c: create_run_template: 1108 container creation template for test1 failedlxc-create: lxc_create.c: main: 274 Error creating container test1root at cont02:~# cat test.log 
     lxc-create 1443895567.971 WARN     lxc_log - log.c:lxc_log_init:316 - lxc_log_init called with log already initialized     lxc-create 1443895568.214 ERROR    lxc_container - lxccontainer.c:create_run_template:1108 - container creation template for test1 failed     lxc-create 1443895568.216 WARN     lxc_cgmanager - cgmanager.c:cgm_get:963 - do_cgm_get exited with error     lxc-create 1443895568.217 ERROR    lxc_create_ui - lxc_create.c:main:274 - Error creating container test1root at cont02:~#

The host system (cont02) is not behind any proxies (other than normal firewall), and can perform all other network operations without issue (apt update, upgrade, etc).
Any ideas where to start on this?
