Don't understand why I can't identify

Tell me if I’m spoiling too much.
I’m proceeding like I did to resolve Unknown Sender, but in reverse (in some ways).

None of my responses are the solution and I don’t get it.
I tried all kinds of IDs so is there a hidden hint which I maybe cannot see due to my poor translation/understanding ?

Well, try to at least answer the question it asks, not the one you think it asks. Other than that, waiting a couple of days sometimes helps.

I’ve tried a few things, first obvious, then even going as far as holding my thumb against the textarea to get a good scan of my ‘thumbprint’

Tried waiting a few days, tried using the steps in the Privacy guide..

I’ve got a 3000-some bit key… is it looking for 4096 bits specifically?

Have been waiting for 2 days already… How long can it take?

Alex - I put this on the shelf for 5 months since life got a little busy, came back today, and it worked.
So… the answer is somewhere between 2 days and 5 months.

@luxedo, FYI I uploaded just yesterday and now see a pgp message, so less than 24 hours for the wait.
However I’m getting a decryption error saying that the secret key is not found (although its there), any ideas?

Regarding the identity:

You should indicate the full id of the sender (name + email) like how it appears when you list the keys

Just completed the challenge with the help of a fellow member. I wanted to give few more hints for those who are stuck (90%!).

You can complete the challenge by just using web tools and https://pgp.key-server.io/ seems faster than the other website (less than 10min delay)
